BDD stands for Buckbee, Doyle, Dupont. We work with social institutions like schools, criminal justice programs, community mental health professionals, hospitals and the like who deal with human beings often during difficult times. We also adapt our work to discuss the daily living issues like helping a business address the process of change and customer service. Our job is to look at and develop programs to help people address the constant changes and stress that comes with human interaction. The programs we design are built to focus on the needs of the institution so no two are alike just like the humans that occupy them.

BDD working in Prague at the 2007 International Family Therapy Association Conference. BDD is perhaps the only active training triad in the world. They do training as it has seldom been experienced, they bring content, humor and safety to difficult topics. They put their hearts and souls into the process of teaching about systems, all kinds, but at the center is the Human system.
We believe that each person is a unique manifestation of life and that we all
go through a process of change as we grow as individuals and organizations. We design our teaching based on the needs of the client. We use models that adapt well to the exploration of systems, in particular human systems. We also provide short informational programs dealing with the
complex process called change. We have been teaching together since 1988.
Some of the topics have included working with dementia, depression and aging,
suicide and loss, community based alternatives to incarceration and alternative sentencing using
community volunteers, self care for caregivers workshops, working with victim
support services, end of life protocols for persons working with an aging
community and communication workshops in a variety of organizations. We are also part of an annual program called the "Delta Force" which is a program for upcoming community leaders. We have also done many programs for human service professionals teaching the methods and concepts put forward by Virginia Satir.
We have worked in the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, Israel and

We started B.D.D. in 1988 when we began training Michigan
volunteers who worked with children in secure and nonsecure holding
facilities. The models we use are based in most part on the work of the
late Virginia Satir, mentor and friend.
We enjoy working with human service workers, teachers and leaders from all walks of life who are looking for tools that work when addressing the process of change.
