May 12, 13, 14, 2013 in Boulder, Colorado:  EA Long-form (full, 4th ed.) as well as EA intervention training. The full 4th edition training as well as training to conduct the EA interventions (parents, professionals) were conducted. This was a small-group setting. Video cases of children of varied ages (including the Infancy/Early Childhood as well as Middle Childhood/Youth Version) were shown and scoring illustrated.  Certification is offered only with this authorized training; certification is good for 2 years, after which online recertification is recommended, by passing a test on the use of system, so that we are not using the system in isolation and do inter-laboratory checks.  A distance component after the training leads to reliability.  This version is the full training and is recommended for research, program evaluation, as well as clinical use of many kinds.  With this training, you may also use the Clinical Version, for daily use. For doing an EA Parent Child Interactional as part of custody or social service evaluations, this is recommended, though the professional can begin with the short clinical version.  If you are unable to make it to this training, please go back to the left navigation bar and learn about the distance/online training, which is perfectly acceptable for all purposes.
