Welcome to Watch Wait Wonder® DownUnder
This site supports the training and development of the Watch, Wait, and Wonder® Intervention as modified in Dunedin, New Zealand and refined, manualised  and researched in Toronto, Canada by Elisabeth Muir, Nancy Cohen and Mirek Lojkasek.
This empirically tested intervention [1999, 2002] is used with infants and young children who may have relational, behavioural, regulatory and/or developmental difficulties and parents who may feel troubled in their relationship with their child.
Following assessment, and with the family's support, dyads generally attend weekly for 8-24 sessions [the research averaged 15 sessions]. Most often mothers are involved with fathers attending regular family review sessions. These decisions typically reflect the primary nature of the infant’s relationships at this early stage of development.
