0-5s Practice Competency Tapes

You will have to submit three therapy video recordings over the year. One of these recordings will be of the IY group you run, which is a formative tape. The group tape submitted for marking will preferably have 50% of your whole group attendance in the session. A minimum of 6 people attending is also acceptable.

 

You will also submit two VIG recordings across the year. These will include whole shared review sessions and a selection of the VIG clips used during the intervention.

 

Guidance on Tape Length and Session

For your IY group tape, you must submit a whole group tape, of approximately two hours length. The group itself must last for 2 hours, plus the time for a break. This should be an example of leading the group in weeks 5, 6 or 7.


For the VIG tapes, these should be a whole shared review session, of approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes in length. The clips reviewed in the session should also be submitted with each tape. It is advised that the first shared review session with a family is not used.

 

Guidance on Recording Sessions

You will be expected to submit videos as part of the clinical assessment and treatment and bring these to supervision on a weekly basis. It is essential that you obtain the consent of your clients (parents) for the recording to be used for supervision and/or assessment and submit this with your tapes. The consent form also asks whether your client will be willing for the recording to be used in future training. You should consult your placement supervisor about your Trust’s policies on storing the recordings and transporting the clips and submissions to the University.

 

Recording Equipment

All Trusts and services should provide trainees with recording equipment to make and transport video recordings securely

 

Marking Criteria

For Parenting Group tapes, Incredible Years Parent Group Leader Rating Scale marking criteria will be used. Marking criteria is adapted from the Incredible Years Collaborative Process checklist, copyright Carolyn Webster-Stratton. A Pass at this level equates to the competencies required for tape review based on the CYP IAPT PG Diploma National Curriculum competencies.

 

For VIG tapes, the shared reviews will be marked against the national standards set out by AVIGuk in the VIG Skill Development Scale (VIG-SDS). You must achieve a minimum score of 2.5 in each area to pass the VIG competency recordings.

 

Reflective Practice Log

Three Reflective logs are required – one handed in with each tape (A, B and C). The logs can be written on any topic that has been a significant part of the work. The writing must follow a reflective structure, to include experience/observation; reflection; summary, plans and implications. A focus on practitioner development is helpful. The questions below are there as a guide only.

 

Reflective Log with Group Tape A (1000 words)

You could use this log to reflect on the process of using Video Interaction Guidance. You can be guided by your own experiences and should use a reflective model. Some questions that may support your thinking could include: what progress have parents (and child) made and how has the work supported this? What has your engagement with the parent been like? How have you managed to negotiate and evaluate helping questions? How have you experienced using the VIG-SDS?

Reflective Log with Tape B (1000 words)

You could use this log to reflect on the delivery of the Incredible Years group. You can be guided by your own experiences and should use a reflective model. Some questions that may support your thinking could include:  . What was positive about the process of recruiting and selecting families to participate? Which elements of the model fit well with your practicing style and which do you have to work on? How have you experienced co-facilitation in this group? Which sessions have gone particularly well, and which have not worked so well as planned? 

 

Reflective Log with Tape C (1000 words)

You could use this log  to reflect on the process of developing in the use of Video Interaction Guidance. You can be guided by your own experiences and should use a reflective model. Some questions that may support your thinking could include:  What progress have parents made and how has VIG supported this? What has your engagement with the parent been like? How have you managed to negotiate and evaluate helping questions? How have you progressed in using the video technology? Are you able to identify attuned principles? How have you progressed, based on the VIG-SDS? What are your next steps?
