Become a sponsor

DDPI Worldwide invites you to support the 2024 DDPI Worldwide Conference and help create this fantastic event.


Thank you for considering to support the 2024 DDPI Worldwide Conference, from 23 to 24 September 2024. Our hybrid style event is hosted in-person in Nottingham, UK, and sessions in the main hall will be streamed online worldwide.

Our theme is “DDP: Exploring Intersectionality”.

This is the first in-person Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Practice (DDP) conference in the UK and globally since 2019. We anticipate it will be an incredibly popular and exciting event bringing together like-minded people, dedicated to the treatment of childhood developmental trauma.
