The Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) is a structured technique for observing and assessing the overall quality and nature of relationships between caregivers and child. It consists of a series of simple tasks designed to elicit behaviors in four primary dimensions in order to evaluate the caregivers’ capacity to:

  • Set limits and provide an appropriately ordered environment (Structure)
  • Engage the child in interaction while being attuned to the child’s state (Engagement)
  • Meet the child’s needs for attention, soothing and care (Nurture)
  • Support and encourage the child’s efforts to achieve at a developmentally appropriate level (Challenge)
  • And the child’s ability to respond to the caregivers’ efforts

The manual for the administration and observational analysis of the MIM includes includes activity cards and recommended task lists for each age group

Because the MIM does not currently have a numeric rating system, skillful interpretation requires lots of practice, preferable with professional supervision. Click here for more information about the MIM assessment.
