EA® System (BASIC) In Vivo/Live Training/Online Reliability & Certification (Newborn – 17 years)

The EA System is a tool to conceptualize and evaluate the quality of adult-child relationships (as evaluated by trained and reliable observers) from an attachment theory perspective.  The system has been “exported” for use in independent laboratories for almost 30 years and is one of the most heavily utilized, reliable, and valid observational systems to date, and is being used worldwide (at least 25 countries, 5 continents), and almost all sub-cultures in the United States. There is ongoing, self-paced, online training for the EA System, and hence no need to wait for a live, in vivo training; you may gather a group in your organization or nearby areas for going through the online training together as an EA community (contact us for the lowered registration fees as incentive to work together as an EA Community).  It is also possible to have a dedicated “live” (virtual) training for your community; please ask.
