Sensi attended MIM Training in November 2019
The Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) is a structured technique for observing and assessing the overall quality and nature of relationships between caregivers and child.
It consists of a series of simple tasks designed to elicit behaviors in four primary dimensions in order to evaluate the caregivers’ capacity to:
• Set limits and provide an appropriately ordered environment (Structure)
• Engage the child in interaction while being attuned to the child’s state (Engagement)
• Meet the child’s needs for attention, soothing and care (Nurture)
• Support and encourage the child’s efforts to achieve at a developmentally appropriate level (Challenge)
• And the child’s ability to respond to the caregivers’ efforts
