Using Video Enhanced Reflective Practice (VERP) to develop practice

Using Video Enhanced Reflective Practice (VERP) to develop practice Video Enhanced Reflective Practice (VERP) is reflective practice that is enhanced by the use of video. It is a strengths based approach based on the principles of attuned interaction from Video Interactive Guidance (VIG). VERP aims to improve effective communication in the situation it naturally occurs. It is a way of reflecting on clips of successful communication and identifying practitioners identifying areas for development or working points that they wish to work on.

During this Using Video Enhanced Reflective Practice / VERP course you will set your own learning objectives around:

  • area of practice
  • focus children
  • aspects you wish to develop further

After an initial training session on the principles of attuned interaction, the participants take a 10 minute video of themselves in an interaction with a child/group of children. The participant views the video using the principles of attuned interaction, and then selects 2-3 clips that illustrate moments that are helpful in achieving attuned interaction and they wish to share with the facilitator and the group. The participant may also want to choose a clip that presents a challenge to them. This can be discussed with the group and the facilitator.

It is for those working with children who wish to develop their attunement and communication with children, and requires access to video recording devices and an ability to edit small clips of film.

Course length: Half day training session + 3 group reflective sessions

Course Cost: TBC per candidate
