The home visitor recorded a video of the mother and child interacting during daily routines, such as bath and meal time. During the following visit, the home visitor and mother discussed the video together and the home visitor helped the mother reflect on her parenting practices.
To guide the visits, the home visitors used (1) a series of six DVDs on topics such as pregnancy, child care, and child development; and (2) brochures covering a variety of health and mental health topics.
Model intensity and length
The length of each home visit was at least 1.5 hours.
