Table 4 Effect of VIPI (differences between VIPI and TAU) on EAS score at the 6-month follow-up; T3, adjusted for EAS score and BDI at baseline: Regression coefficient estimate, CI, and p-value for VIPI at different values of EAs score and BDI score at baseline

1. The regression equation:
2. EAS 3 = 100.943 + 0.437 EAS1 – 16.103 VIPI + 0.056 EAS1 × VIPI – 0.630 BDI + 0.688 BDI × VIPI.
3. VIPI = 1(0) for the treatment group (TAU).
4. EAS: Emotional Availability Scales, BDI: Beck Depression Inventory. High EAS scores indicate good emotional availability in the parent–child dyad. BDI = 5 indicates no depression; BDI = 15 indicate mild depressive symptoms and BDI = 25 indicates moderate depressive symptoms.
