Child Attachment &
Play Assessment

Reliable coders

To gain reliability as a CAPA coder people are required to pass a reliability test and reach at least 75% agreement with a set of codings agreed by the trainers. Reliability is currently given for 3 years and renewal is dependent on the coder maintaining practice, training and periodic supervision of their work.

At March 1st 2021 twenty three people were reliable in this system. Those listed below are available to code story stems for use in professional practice. Any enquiries should be made to them.
