A short video clip showing a team of psychologists observing a family through a two-way mirror.  The lead psychologist has a tally chart with clearly headed behaviour categories, marking each behaviour with 'F' or 'M' each time father or mother makes a relevant behaviour.  Useful for research methods.  It's one of the clips I use with http://www.psychexchange.co.uk/resource/1691/  (PSYA1 problem families video worksheet).
