What is ICDP?

ICDP (International Child Development Program) is a program that helps establish, correct, or improve parent-child contact.
It was created in 1985 by an international group of psychologists from Norway, Sweden, and the UK, led by psychologist Carsten Hundeide.
Today it is used in 44 countries on all continents, and approved by WHO and UNICEF.
The program's effectiveness is checked annually using standard psychological tests conducted by the facilitators during the program (at least before and after).
All facilitators are trained and certified, and work under the supervision of an accredited organization.
