Video interaction guidance

The 2 day training course will provide an introduction to Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) and its theoretical origins.

It will also offer illustrations of clips used by guiders with clients and an introduction to the framework for micro-analysis of attuned and non-attuned interaction, based on the work of developmental psychologist Colwyn Trevarthen. The ratio of trainers to participants will be roughly 1:4, to allow close support to the small group skills based practice sessions that participants will engage in on both days.

Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) is a relatively new intervention approach in the UK whose methods, quality and standards are specified by the Association for Video Interaction Guidance UK. VIG works in a respectful and collaborative way with clients using edited video clips of “better than usual” communication between people as the basis of reflective dialogue about how to develop the relationship further. It is a relationship-based intervention which helps parents become more sensitive and attuned to their child’s emotional needs, regardless of the age of the child. There is a growing evidence base for the effectiveness of relatively short sensitivity-focused interventions with parents using video feedback in an attuned way.

VIG has been used by a wide range of staff including educational and clinical psychologists, social workers, CAMHS workers, health visitors, residential care staff, speech and language therapists, children’s centre workers and peripatetic teachers in early years and special education settings. It has often been used in situations where communication and relationships between adults and children or young people have almost completely broken down as well as in situations in which good communication has been slow to develop. There is a developing evidence base for the effectiveness of VIG u TM in promoting change in families where a history of professional input has failed to lead to change.
