Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch Up
Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC), a 10-session home visiting model for foster, adoptive and biological parents of infants between six and 24 months of age. It was developed to help parents nurture their distressed child, to follow their child’s lead, and to avoid frightening their child. ABC is an evidence based intervention.
An intervention for parents wanting to reflect on their caregiving role. Video-Feedback involves first videotaping a parent and an infant/child during a play situation. This is followed by reviewing the videotaped interaction with the parent in order to increase caregiver’s sensitivity, reflection and attunement to the infant/child. This portion of intervention can be offered one/one and in group. Attachment Video-Feedback can also be followed by an art and play based personalized intervention between caregiver and infant/child aimed at offering a parent opportunities to work on specific caregiving goals identified during Video-Feedback.
