Essential for programs using the PICCOLO™, this training DVD includes a 64-minute narrated presentation and 14 invaluable DVD clips of parent–child interactions to help users practice observing and scoring.

The introductory presentation explains the 4 PICCOLO domains (Affection, Responsiveness, Encouragement, and Teaching), describes how each domain is important for child development, and walks the viewer through each of the 29 items on the tool. Viewers also learn which types of activities work best for observations, how to talk to a family about the observation, guidelines for video recording, and how to use results to help plan home visits.

The DVD includes 11 clips of English-speaking families—4 1-minute clips, 4 5-minute clips, 3 10-minute clips. Three clips of Spanish-speaking families (1 1-minute clip, 1 5-minute clip, and 1 10-minute clip) are also provided. Programs can use these clips in staff training to ensure reliable use of the PICCOLO. A scoring key for each clip with rationale is inclued in the PICCOLO User's Guide.

This DVD is part of the PICCOLO, a quick and reliable observation tool for measuring parent–child interactions. Learn more about the PICCOLO.
