Coding Interactive Behavior (CIB): Feldman, 1998
The Coding Interactive Behavior (CIB) is a global rating system for analyzing social interactions between two or more partners. The CIB comprises five manuals;newborns, infants, preschoolers, adolescents/ adults, and the recently added psychotherapy manual, all based on the same constructs with good psychometric properties. The CIB utilizes a variety of social settings and observational paradigms (e.g., free play, feeding, conflict discussion, triadic/family interactions) and has been used in hundreds ofpublished studies in healthy and high-risk populations and clinical trials.
The CIB is used internationally and trained coders now conduct studies in multiple sites in the USA, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Hong-Kong, Chile, Columbia, Argentine, Australia, and South Africa.
Training to use the CIB involves a two-day seminar and personal reliability via email with our lab. Training is given one a year in the US and once a year in Europe.

Our lab developed and validated several micro-coding schemes that are usually coded on computerized systems
- Parent-infant social interactions
- Parent-infant exploration
- Triadic mother-father-child interactions
- Emotion Regulation paradigms for infants and children
- Social synchrony in children, adolescents, and adults
