This coding system is being developed for research purposes only. It has not been examined for its suitability for applied use and, because very highly trained coders are required, may give results that are easily misinterpreted. In particular, the items marked "a" are often confused with the preceding items. Diagnostic statement based on this assessment are unwarranted at this time because investigations of the reliability and validity of this assessment in applied settings have not been carried out and because many different conditions are associated with lower sensitivity as assessed on the device ( Crittenden & Bonvillian, 1984).
The behavioral items listed below cover seven aspects of interactional behavior. For each there are three types of adult descriptions: (S)ensitive, (C)ontrolling, and (U)nresponsive. Following them are four types of infant items: (C)ooperative, (D)ifficult, (P)assive, and (C)ompulsive (C)ompliant. Items marked "a" are pseudo-sensitive controlling items; items marked "b" are openly angry controlling items.
