Video-Feedback Intervention to Promote Positive Parenting-Sensitive Discipline® (VIPP-SD).Adaptations and Enhancements

The model has been adapted for specific target populations. The following adaptations are designed for delivery in the home:
 

  • Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting (VIPP) is the precursor to VIPP-SD. VIPP, developed for families with infants from newborn to 12 months, focused on fostering a positive attachment between the infant and caregiver. VIPP-SD was subsequently created to extend VIPP to families with children ages 1 through 6 years old and add a focus on supporting positive discipline. VIPP-SD is now the core model, and VIPP is considered a version of VIPP-SD. VIPP consists of seven home visits. The VIPP-SD training covers training on how to implement VIPP.
  • Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting adapted to Autism (VIPP-AUTI) serves caregivers of children from birth through age 6 who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. VIPP-AUTI consists of six home visits focused on helping caregivers understand their children’s behavior and enhancing caregiver–child interactions. Home visitors must complete the VIPP-SD training before enrolling in the VIPP-AUTI course. The VIPP-AUTI training costs €650 (2019 euros) or $737 (2019 USD) per person and includes two full-day, in-person training sessions, three post-training coaching sessions, and a certificate.
  • Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting adapted to Foster Care (VIPP-FC) serves parents with a foster child from birth through age 6. This adaptation consists of seven visits and uses the same model components as VIPP-SD. The home visitor tailors feedback to the needs of the parents and the specific behavioral characteristics of foster children. No further information is available on the VIPP-FC training.
  • Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting adapted to Turkish Minority Mothers (VIPP-TM) serves second-generation Turkish mothers with a child ages 1 through 6. This adaptation consists of seven visits and uses the same strategies as VIPP-SD to improve parental sensitivity and discipline with additional attention paid to the cultural background of the family.
