Abstract/Book Review

This paper describes a group work programme called 'Together Time'. The group was set up for parents and infants between 10 and 24 months of age, where there was concern about the parents' ability to 'play' and difficulties in the parent-infant relationship. The group ran for 10 weeks with four dyads in total. We used the Watch, Wait and Wonder approach in order to heighten parents' observational skills, and to stimulate discussion and thinking with parents about their infants' experiences in the group. Clinical vignettes are inserted throughout this paper, based on my observations of the group and the interactions between each dyad over the course of the 10 sessions.
