The MIM, is a structured observation technique designed to assess the quality and nature of child-carer interaction to identify how the child reacts to the carer’s attempts to:
- Structure the environment and set clear, appropriate expectations and limits
- Engage the child in interaction whilst being attuned to the child’s state and reactions
- Respond in a nurturing way to the child’s needs, including being able to soothe and calm the child when needed
- Provide and respond to challenge in an appropriate way
