- Play, Attachment, and Video Intervention Therapy (VIT)
Play is widely accepted as an important resource for child and family support and counseling. Paradoxically, however, the full complexity of play, and of its relation to development, are often too little recognized.

This seminar will present a research-based account of different forms and aspects of play. Issues about both attachment and other aspects of development will be considered. A use of clinical video intervention which takes account of this complexity will be described.
Themes covered will include:
- The types and functions of play: theories and research findings
- How video techniques, together with play, can strengthen attachment and bonding
- The use of video intervention to improve a child’s level of play
- Special uses of parent-child play with protection services cases
- Special uses of parent-child play with difficult adoption cases
- Special uses of parent-child play with traumatized children
- Special uses of parent-child play with children with atypical development
Persons new to VIT are welcome in the seminar. Recommendations will be given for how you can begin at once with a simplified version of VIT after the seminar.
