About this training

Video-feedback intervention to promote Positive Parenting (VIPP) is an attachment-theory informed, short-term intervention aiming to increase parental sensitivity through video feedback.

VIPP aims to build a strong relationship between the parent/carer and their child by practising observational skills with the parent, thus increasing the parents’ understanding of and empathy for the child. It is a strengths based intervention which builds parents’ confidence and allow them to build on the skills they already have.

The course is delivered over 5 full days of training. After completing the VIPP training, you will be required to work with a practice family under supervision before you are accredited as a VIPP practitioner.
