Course Description

The course will include information on the major research findings highlighting mind-mindedness as a predictor of children's later development and the development of the mind-mindedness assessments.

Attendees will be provided with a copy of the Mind-Mindedness Coding Manual and detailed explanation of the coding schemes.

Extensive examples of infant–mother interactions indicative of the different internal state comments and the basis of coding comments as appropriate or non-attuned will be given. The course will also include extensive examples of how to code mind-mindedness from the describe-your-child and describe-your-friend measures. Attendees will conduct independent coding of infant–mother interaction sequences and child descriptions, and will receive feedback on the accuracy of their coding.

Attendees are also welcome to bring along examples of their own data that they would like to code for mind-mindedness.

All attendees will receive a copy of the DVD Mind-reading for beginners which provides a user-friendly introduction to mind-mindedness that can be used either in research or clinical practice.
