Prenatal EA®

To be trained on the prenatal version, you first need to trained in BASIC, and then you can undertake this training.

Prenatal EA (developed by Salo, Flykt, & Biringen) can be done in the last trimester of pregnancy (once the mom can feel some movements), and then the maternal sensitivity and maternal nonhostility dimensions of EA are coded.  We have a set protocol for conducting this assessment, and it has been found to be predictive of postnatal EA as well as maternal depression.
