This paper aims to present the application of the task named Emotional Event Dialogues for the first time in teacher-child dyads. The Emotional Event Dialogues evaluates the emotional matching of an adult-child dyad form the narrative perspective. The partners have to co-construct four stories with an emotional theme: the most important element to define an emotional matched dyad is the construction of four different stories developed with cooperation and mutual engagement of both partners. The description of the task and the coding system, accompanied by examples of each type of dyad considered, highlights the applicability of this task also in extra-family environment and highlights the benefits and potential of its use by operators who for various reasons are interested in knowing the emotional functioning of the main relationships that are established at school.
