  • Background:
    • VIPP Method
      • Video Feedback for Parents
      • Home Setting, mostly Mother-Child relationship
      • 6 Sessions:
        • Difference between Exploration and Attachment Behavior
        • Verbally describing the behavior of the child
        • Describing positive interactions
        • Highlighting shared emotions
        • 2 Sessions for repeated practice and integration
    • VIPP-SD Method
      • VIPP, but also includes:
        • Children > 1 year-old
        • Additional Module for "Sensitive Discipline": Teaching children rules in a sensitive way (inductive, explaining the "why") inspired by Gerald Patterson (1982)
  • Research Question:
    • Is it possible to design effective interventions to enhance sensitive parenting?
  • Method:
    • Test VIPP with 6-9 month old children
    • Test VIPP-SD with 1-3 year old children with behavioral problems
  • Results:
    • VIPP & VIPP-SD
      • Mothers showed higher sensitivity and the children calmer behavior
  • Interpretation:
    • Sensitivity can be improved through interventions and will in turn positively effect mother-child relationships.
