The professionals and the clients participated in the INV project and were very satisfied with the new method, because it was able to formalize and make the professional aware the approach, what they have already applied in the practice for a while, but not so efficiently as it is possible with the help of the INV tools, i.e. the self-observation register and the evaluation tools.
The professionals are working now on the more widespread application of the INVmethod, involving those assistants, who did not participate on the demonstration of the INV model.
