Improvement Work, Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) and Video Enhanced Reflective Practice (VERP)
Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) is a therapeutic intervention through which a practitioner aims to enhance communication within relationships. It works by engaging clients actively in a process of change towards realising their own hopes for a better future in their relationships with others who are important to them. When it is used by professionals to reflect on their own communication with service users it is usually referred to as Video Enhanced Reflective Practice (VERP).
In both versions, its aim is to give individuals a chance to reflect on their interactions, drawing attention to elements that are successful, and supporting clients to make changes where desired. Within North Ayrshire we are in the early stages of taking this approach forward.
