14 BEING ATTENTIVE ENCOURAGING INITIATIVES RECEIVING INITIATIVES ATTUNED INTERACTION GUIDING DEEPENING DISCUSSION Parent led 1. TOWARDS INTERSUBJECTIVITY Pre-requisite for building attuned interactions 2. INTERSUBJECTIVITY The core of attuned interactions 3. MEDIATED LEARNING Developing the attuned relationship Building blocks for parent as care-giver Possible impact of each block for child as care-seeker Feels love, recognized and important Knows their parents are interested in what they are doing and their wishes Experiencing being received, parent commenting on what they are doing and their wishes Enjoys interacting with their parent Enjoys being helped and learning from their parents Is helped to manage difficult situations or learn new things

15 Check list for attunement in conversations Foundations for attunement Are you being attentive by  Looking interested  Turning towards  Giving time and space  Smiling  Friendly intonation and posture  wondering what they are doing, thinking, feeling Are you encouraging initiatives by  Waiting  Using friendly intonation  Listening actively  Looking for initiatives  Naming postively what you see, hear, think, feel tabout them  Name what you are doing, thinking, feeling

16 Initiative & Reception Are you receiving their initiatives by  Showing you have heard, noticed their initiative  Receiving with body-language  Being friendly and/or playful as appropriate  Returning eye-contact, smiling, nodding in response  Receiving what they are saying or doing with words  Repeating/using their words or phrases  

17 Attuned Interactions Are you developing an attuned interaction pattern by  Receiving and then responding  Checking they are understanding you  Waiting attentively for your turn.  Having fun (if appropriate)  Giving a second (and further) turn on same topic  Giving and taking short turns  Interrupting long turns in the yes- cycle  Contributing to interaction / activity equally  Co-operating - helping each other 

18 Developing the relationship Are you giving guidance by  Extending, building on their response  Judging the amount of support required and adjusting  Giving information when needed  Providing help when needed  Offering choices that they can understand  Making suggestions that they can follow Are you deepening the discussion by Supporting goal-setting  Sharing viewpoints  Collaborative discussion and problem-solving  Naming difference of opinion.  Investigating the intentions behind words  Naming contradictions/conflicts (real or potential)  Reaching new shared understandings  Managing conflict (back to Being attentive and receive initiatives aiming to restore attuned interactions)

25 VIG 24 May 2012 16:54

26 What did we find? We hypothesised that VIG might be considered a form of surveillance or control in a CP context What we found was: Participants found the experience of the teaching to be ‘luxurious’ and ‘nurturing’ Participants did not use the video, but used the ‘principles’ on ‘a daily basis’ Participants found that the teaching most helped them in their working relationships and communication, many used it as a tool for supervision Participants found it helped them to ‘get more information’ from clients Participants found it helped them reflect on their own behaviour and practice Participants did not immediately consider issues of surveillance or power but came to consider it as part of the interview ……to be followed up
