The Infant CARE-Index – online training

The Infant CARE-Index (ICI, Crittenden, 1981) is the simplest and most versatile of the DMM assessments. It assesses patterns of interaction of infants and their carers from birth to about 15 months of age based on a 3-minute video-recorded play interaction. It does not assess attachment & captures the best of dyad’s functioning (rather than capturing the dyad’s response to stress, i.e., attachment). The ICI has extensive published validating evidence. The course is taught in English.
