Each session has a theme. The first two sessions are focused on the child’s behavior and learning to read the child’s signals, and the next two sessions are focused on the mother’s responses paying attention to the sensitivity chain child sends a signal, mother responds, child sends back a positive response that shows mother how important she is for the child’s well-being. Each week’s video is searched for examples of positive behaviors that illustrate the next week’s topic. Explicitly pointing out mother’s skill emphasizes mother’s competence as a caregiver and her expert knowledge of her child and encourages mother to stay involved in the program. Because the program directly targets the parent’s behavior to increase sensitive responses, the baby’s positive reaction provides ongoing reinforcement for the mother and the program can be a short one.
