RFTS Videotape (in VHS or DVD format) – includes segments of parenting challenges to be discussed by parents in the course. In 2006, the Infant-Parent Program completed a revision of the existing video vignettes. The new video clips have much improved technical quality both in sound and in visual quality. As well, in response to feedback, the video uses a wider diversity of interaction situations and families and family members, including boys and girls with and without special needs, fathers and mothers, teen parents, and parents and babies from other cultures. The new video clips have been successfully pilot tested in RFTS sessions run in Hamilton.
