Intensive Interaction is probably the most positive and accessible way of getting in touch with and empowering people who may seem locked in their 'inner world'. This DVD training resource seeks to bridge the gap in the range of currently available material on the use of Intensive Interaction and shows how Intensive Interaction is used to find ways of communicating with people who have multiple and profound learning disabilities, enabling them to express their feelings as well as their needs. It shows care staff and family carers learning to use a number of simple Intensive Interaction techniques with four adults, under the guidance of Phoebe Caldwell. It also includes explanatory discussion between Phoebe Caldwell and Pene Stevens, a clinical nurse specialist in the field, and from the carers themselves supplement these powerful films.
This resource is for anyone involved in supporting a person with severe and profound learning disabilities, helping them to establish 'two-way' creative conversations that have meaning for the individual.
