Purpose: To describe mother-infant interaction in response to a bi-directional, multi-sensory intervention for infants with Irritable Infant Syndrome (IIS) and test the feasibility and acceptability of the bi-directional, multi-sensory intervention (ATVV) in this population. Because IIS has been associated with altered mother-infant interaction, and ATVV has been successful in facilitating positive mother-infant interaction in at-risk infants, we hypothesize that in full term infants with IIS, ATVV can facilitate positive mother-infant interaction Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: Guided by the transactional model which posits that child development occurs during transactions among child, parents, and their environment, this pilot study seeks to assess the feasibility and acceptability of the ATVV intervention for infants with IIS, to describe maternal psychological responses and mother-infant interaction in response to the ATVV intervention in this population Subjects: The convenience sample will consist of N=10 mother-infant dyads (10 mothers and 10 infants). Inclusion criteria includes infants between the ages of 4 weeks and 8 weeks, reported infant crying or fussing for 3 hours a day, for 3 days a week for at least 3 weeks. Exclusion criteria include mothers with known drug or alcohol abuse, prior mental health diagnoses and infants with known medical conditions including HIV or AIDS Method: A longitudinal, descriptive, one group design with repeated measures will be used. The following measures will be compared pre and post intervention: NCAST Feeding Scale and Mini-Dyadic Code (mother-infant interaction), State-Trait Anxiety Scale, and Postpartum Depression Screening Scale. Feasibility will be assessed through documentation of all implementation difficulties and their resolutions. Acceptability will be assessed via a final evaluation interview. Data analysis will include descriptive statistics, correlation techniques, and paired dependent t-tests. [Poster Presentation]
