This article gives an overview of video interaction guidance (VIG) and how it is especially suited to working with parents and infants in the perinatal period. VIG is an evidence-based short-term intervention, based on theories of intersubjectivity.

Training is being developed for health visitors to qualify as VIG guiders and enhance their practice.
