This is a method founded to prevent children from being placed in foster care. The core of the method is the basic communication and establishing contact. An essential part is the ‘receiving’ of the other, in a way that the other feels heard or seen. That the other is acknowledged for what he or she feels, says or experiences.
The effect is contact and relaxation. From that baseline contact can be created, a relation can be felt. Whether it is between parent and child or taking care of a baby or teaching adolescents in school. In every contact it is of priceless value to be heard and acknowledged. It is what every human being needs.
