Dan Hughes is a leading authority on dyadic developmental psychotherapy and has integrated recent research on the neurobiology of trauma, early child development and attachment.

During one of his many trips to Scotland as a guest of Scottish Attachment in Action, Iriss was pleased to video record Dan explaining how the brain reacts to trauma and how an understanding of this process is helpful to foster and adoptive parents as well professionals such as residential care workers and teachers.
