Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) Training
Next training session:
Day 1: TBC
Day 2: TBC
A two day introductory training course in Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) UK, a strengths-focused, relationship-based intervention, that promotes interactive attunement between adults and children.
VIG is an intervention where the clients are guided to reflect on video clips of their own successful interactions. VIG is used by those working with parents and carers who are experiencing difficulties in communication with their children, and who wish to develop better relationships with them. VIG is also relevant for staff working with children and young people in schools, special education or care settings and for staff in higher education who support others in teaching and supervision skills.
VIG is used across education, health, social work and the voluntary sector. VIG is recommended as an evidence-based intervention in a number of NICE guidelines, and has been selected by the NSPCC (2011) as one of its two chosen evidence-based interventions to tackle neglect.
Who is the course for?

- An overview and understanding of the principles of attuned interaction and guidance.
