KidsTLC embodies DDP

It is part of who we are as an agency responding with the greatest care to unmet needs in our community.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) and Practice guide our understanding and treatment of children who have experienced developmental trauma. Dan Hughes and Grey McKellar have trained many of our therapists and staff in DDP principles and approaches as part of our Organizational DDP Practicum to become a certified DDP Organization. The Organizational Practicum is a sweeping transformative process enhancing our overall capacity to assure that children feel safe enough to learn to trust again.

Our DDP therapeutic philosophy is guided by George Thompson, MD and Brandon Mock, ATR-BC, LPC, LMFT. You may contact them or our intake director at 913-324-3658, for more information.

  • KidsTLC Senior Leadership is DDP trained.
  • All Direct Care staff will have opportunities to become DDP trained.
