Infants Hold Hands

Delivery Method: 

For young infants, gripping another child’s hand is most often a physical rather than a social act. Over time, physical actions such as these develop to include social applications. This videative invites you to take a close look at two infants who are holding and releasing each other’s hands and asks you to speculate on what the infants might be thinking. By looking carefully at both their timing and the direction of their gazes, we can begin to understand more about the infants’ inner-world.
