The effectiveness of the VIPP has been demonstrated through diverse randomized controlled trials: the method proved to be effective in enhancing caregiver sensitivity and improving the parent-child relationship.
Focus: 
Improving the quality of the parent-child relationship, supporting parents in recognizing signals, accurately perceiving these signals and responding to them in a prompt and adequate way.
Procedure:

VIPP-AUTI
Name: 
Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting adapted to Autism.
Target group: 
Caregivers of children aged 0 to 6 years who are diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorders.
Effectiveness: 
The VIPP-AUTI has been evaluated in a randomized controlled trial and its’ effectiveness has been proved with regard to diverse aspects of the parent-child interaction.
Focus: 
The VIPP-AUTI module takes the behavioral characteristics of young children with autistic spectrum disorders into account. The aim of the VIPP-AUTI is improving the quality of the parent-child interaction and raising optimal developmental opportunities for children with autistic spectrum disorders. The program consists of six home visits during which the intervener will discuss, together with the parents, video recordings of diverse parent-child interactions in everyday situations. Caregivers learn to better understand the behavior of their child. This intervention is suitable for children aged 0 to 6 years who are diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorders.
Procedure: 
5 home visits with video recordings based on a standardized manual. An intervener works with one parent and one child.
Training: 
After completion of the VIPP-SD training course, the VIPP-AUTI module can be attended.

VIPP-Child Care
Name: 
Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting adapted to Child Care (VIPP-CC).
Target group: 
Pedagogical staff in child care.
Effectiveness: 
The VIPP-CC has been evaluated in both day care centers and among childminders in two randomized controlled trials. The method appeared to be effective with regard to different child care quality aspects and with regard to the sensitivity of the pedagogical staff.
Focus: 
A childcare worker is an important attachment figure for children in daycare centers. Just like the VIPP-SD method, the VIPP-CC module is aimed at improving the sensitivity and sensitive discipline strategies of the childcare worker. In this case, the childcare worker will be recognized as a professional.
Procedure: 
7 visits to the day care centre (including an introduction visit) with video recordings based on a standardized manual. An intervener works with one childcare worker and with 4 to 6 children in daycare.
Training: 
After completion of the VIPP-SD training course, the VIPP-Child Care module can be attended.
