Welcome to Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy[edit | edit source]
Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy is an evidence-based, effective, and empirically validated treatment.
The rationale for this site follows from our judgment that whatever the considerable merits of Wikipedia, it could never gain the full support of the academics and professionals as an approved information source.
Yet the technology holds out great promise for centrally consolidating information in the science, providing a conduit for authoritative information for academic and applied training, and continuing professional development, as well as providing a vehicle for informing the general public about this treatment.
By developing a specialist site for Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy we hope to share information and knowledge about this growing and effective treatment approach.
We will develop a mechanism of appropriate peer review of all articles and restrict contributors to those with professional qualifications. This will allow articles to achieve academic status for referencing purpose and eventually ground the content solidly in the knowledge base of the discipline.
We aim to provide an up-to-date, authoritative statement of knowledge, theory, and practice of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. The site is written to serve both staff and students of our academic community, to inform professionals, both in training and in the field, and to provide information for the people we seek to help.
By using the latest collaborative editing software we have built a new kind of knowledge structure for our science that can be shaped and maintained, to the highest academic standards, by our profession as a whole.
We aim for factual accuracy and all articles should be properly referenced. We also aim to be a forum for ideas, so on each discussion page we encourage alternative opinion, proposals for hypotheses requiring verification, practitioner reports, user views, etc.
The Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Wiki founders, administrators, and editors make no money from this site. It is an entirely voluntary operation, disseminating copyright-free psychology information. Our goal is to share, without costs of any kind, psychology knowledge between academics and professionals.
The Google advertisements in the right hand pane on your screen are part of the business funding model of Wikia Inc.. As a new form of publisher, they host the wiki (and hundreds of others), providing the technical facilities, bandwidth, storage, backup, and technical support for free. Their declared intention is to do this in perpetuity, the company making its profit via the advertisements. Wikia was set up jointly by the founder of Wikipedia and a long-time WikiMedia board member, as another approach to making knowlege available, without cost to contributors or readers.
