Supporting attachment through understanding babies’ signals.
Listening to Baby is a streaming video about the importance of supporting attachment by noticing, understanding, and responding with sensitivity to babies’ cues.
This streaming video is a rich and multifaceted teaching tool developed primarily for a parent audience but with potential to be used in education and other settings.
Messages are told mostly in the voices of parents and illustrated by beautiful images of their babies, from 2 weeks to 16 months of age connecting to their parents in the ‘dance’ of communication.
The Listening to Baby streaming video consists of three parts:
The program emphasizes the importance of the parent-child attachment relationship using the voices of real parents describing the importance of parents’ and caregivers’ appropriate responses to babies’ attempts to form relationships.
Scenes of real-life, short interactions between babies and parents show many different, subtle cues babies give to caregivers.
Crafted as a teaching tool, each scene is followed by discussion questions and then re-played but this time with a child’s voice ‘speaking’ for the baby followed by a short narration.
An interview with a doctor provides an introduction to attachment theory and a discussion of intervention approaches.
