 Work plan: Things to do before the next session

  • A. Observe and remember, or make small video recordings of babies or children who react with attachment behaviour when the caregiver leaves.
  • B. Make small video recordings of your spouse or another important family friend/relative who behaves as a secure base.
  • C. Record how the children respond to the foster parent leaving (clings to him/her or starts exploring, crawling away, etc.).


  1. If you used your mobile phone: How do you make sure that only you, the other foster carers and the instructor watch the recordings?
  2. How do you keep the recordings safely to look at later (for instance on a computer with an access code)?
  3. After storing all the recordings on one computer, make sure they are erased from the cell phones or cameras you used for recording.
Thank you for your interest and good luck with your work until next session!
