Watch, Wait and Wonder is an evidence based treatment for young children and their parents, which has been shown to improve infant developmental functioning, emotion regulation and attachment security, and enhance parental sensitive responsiveness, confidence and feelings of efficacy. It is an intervention that works directly and immediately with the infant/child–parent relationship to foster the development of a secure attachment through empowering the infant in the therapy.
