Video Interaction Guidance (VIG)


Due to the current situation we are not offering a face to face service, we are conducting all our services via telephone and video where possible.

VIG is a powerful tool in helping to build parents' self confidence and attachment with their child and enhancing communication within family relationships. It captures short pieces of video of a parent interaction with their child during everyday activities.

Parents are then encouraged to look at the positive interactions in the video clips and supported to grow these, to become more sensitive to children's communication attempts and develop greater awareness of how they can respond in an attuned way.

VIG is a service for families with children aged under 4 years where there may be attachment difficulties.
