video interaction guidance
‘Video Interaction Guidance’ is an intervention offered by Koala North West, through which a practitioner aims to enhance communications within relationships. It aims to give parents a chance to reflect on their interaction with their child, drawing attention to elements that are successful, and supporting parents to make changes where desired.
Who is it for?
‘Video Interaction Guidance’ at Koala North West is for parents and carers with a child under the age of two, who would like support to strengthen the relationship and bond they have with their child.
What's it about?
‘Video Interaction Guidance’ is about capturing video clips that demonstrate positive moments of a parent or carer interacting with their child during everyday activities. It is about encouraging and developing these, by being more sensitive to their childs communication attempts and having a greater awareness of how they can respond in a positive manner.
This intervention is offered in conjunction with the ‘Incredible Years Parent Programme’ and ‘Incredible Years Home Coaching’.
