Looking from the outside in: the use of video in attachment-based interventions
This paper provides an account of multiple potential benefits of using video in clinical interventions designed to promote change in parent–child attachment relationships. The power of video to provide a unique perspective on parents’ ways of thinking and feeling about their
own behavior and that of their child will be discussed in terms of current attachment-based interventions using video either as the main component of the treatment or in addition to a more comprehensive treatment protocol. Interventions also range from those that use micro-analytic as compared
to more global units of analyses, and there are potential bridges to be made with neuro-scientific research findings. In addition, this paper provides a clinical illustration of the utility of showing parents vignettes of video-filmed observations of parent–child interactions from the
Group Attachment Based Intervention (GABI) for vulnerable families. Emphasis is placed on the motivational force arising from seeing (and hearing) oneself in interaction with one’s child on video, thus serving as a powerful catalyst for reflective functioning and updating one’s
frame of reference for how to think, feel and behave with one’s child.
