In infant caregiving caregivers have to provide emotional support to both the child and the parent. In this video parents speak candidly about their concerns, and caregivers discuss ways to provide assistance. The video shows how caregivers can come to better understand the normal behaviors of parents of infants in care, including highly emotional behavior and conflicting feelings about caregiver/child relationships. It also suggests how caregiver displays of competence, honesty, and understanding provide the base for family support. Also included with this DVD is a DVD Booklet.
