Interested in Endorsement® ?
Become part of an international group of professionals who have chosen to earn the Endorsement® credential as a way to demonstrate specialization in the infant-early childhood mental health field. Endorsement® was developed by the Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health in 2002 and is now used by 30 state IMH associations and two international associations. Each of those associations is a member of the Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health.
Through the Alliance, this means that your Endorsement® is recognized in each of those 32 associations! Learn more: allianceaimh.org

New! Reflective Supervision Guidelines for Home Visitors
AK-AIMH is proud to announce the publication of Reflective Supervision: A Guide from Region X to Enhance Reflective Practice Among Home Visiting Programs. This set of guidelines provides a framework and shared language for reflective supervision/consultation (RSC) that are designed to support all reflective practice in the region. Self-assessment tools are included to promote the ongoing professional development of home visitors, supervisors, and programs.
Funding from the Region X Innovation Grant (Growing Together to Support Our Home Visiting Workforce) and a collaboration between Washington's Department of Children, Youth, and Families and the Infant Mental Health Associations of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, with Jacqui Van Horn from New Mexico as the Reflective Specialist, supported the development of these guidelines.
Please feel free to incorporate these guidelines into your reflective practice within your own professional development or within your agency.
