What is the process of Video Enhanced Reflective Practice and Video Interaction Guidance? Participants work collaboratively and in partnership to review a micro-analysis of successful communication moments on video
Change comes about through : - • Reflecting on the effect of actions/communications • Discussion that can activate people to find their own solutions • Recognition and extension of existing skills • Providing visual examples of success that increases self-confidence • Recognition of strengths and promotion of self-directed learning increase motivation • Satisfying and effective communication • Engaging the recipient as an equal partner in the problem solving/learning process • The recipient self-modelling their own successful interactions and being guided to their own solutions rather than being given advice • The guider/supervisor modelling the Contact Principles during feedback to provide a positive blueprint for interactions and communications
Video Enhanced Reflective Practice and Video Interaction Guidance enable integrated training and practice across different disciplines and the simultaneous development of supervisors, practitioners and families through : - • Joint delivery of VIG training (18 – 24 months) to multi-agency and multi-discipline staff • Joint delivery by VERoC, DEPS and SW of short VIG based courses : - • Communication for Management • Communicating with Children • Communicating with Parents • Effective Communication in Supervision Joint delivery of training to joint staff groups creates a richness of professionals developing together
VIG enhances reflective practice for workers and promotes reflection for service users.VIG participants can see themselves reach their goals through a stepped approach that gives them the opportunity to celebrate their successful moments and to transform their WORKING POINTS into TURNING POINTS Parents are being supported to become reflective parents/carers alongside workers in training who are being supported to become reflective practitioners. Thus managers, workers and service users are all undertaking VIG and using exactly the same principles, thereby going through the same learning process as each other.
Video Enhanced Reflective Practice is very challenging to all participants VERP is unique in that it sets training, learning and reflective practice in the context of the workplace and in our direct work with service users. The unique nature of this method is such that it allows for the simultaneous development of service users and practitioners as reflective parents and reflective practitioners.
The common strand is EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION. VIG has something to offer all disciplines as it addresses the universal areas of communication, personal and organisational development. It is also, therefore, an ideal medium for interdisciplinary working
