This video presents the importance of responsive caregiving and explores a process for getting in tune with infants and toddlers in a child care setting. The process consists of studying child development and temperamental differences in infants and toddlers; learning about the children's families and their cultures; developing self-awareness; and mastering the responsive process of watch, ask, and adapt. Jeree Pawl, Ph.D., and Magda Gerber, M.A., are featured. Also included with this DVD is a DVD Booklet.
