Endorsement® Renewal

The Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAIMH) maintains requirements for annual renewal of the RIAIMH Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health (RI-IMH-Endorsement®) that are aligned with practices supported by The Alliance for the Advancement of Infant Mental Health (Alliance). Endorsed® professionals will receive an email from the EASy system notifying them when it is time to renew.

Requirements

  • Maintain RIAIMH membership.
  • Participate in a minimum of 15 clock hours per year of relationship-based education, training, and/or professional development related to the promotion of infant/toddler social-emotional health and development and/or the practice of Infant Mental Health (IMH). Indicate alignment with the IMH competency guidelines.
  • Participate in a minimum of 24 clock hours per year of reflective supervision/consultation (RS/C). Peer supervision or collaborative consultation (with those endorsed at the same category) will count.

Note: After an Infant Mental Health Mentor-Clinical (IMHM-C) professional has maintained the IMHM-C Endorsement® for 3 years, they are not required to receive a minimum the minimum RS/C.

Should you have additional questions, please contact the RIAIMH Endorsement Coordinator at Endorsement@riaimh.org (Please note: Our Endorsement Coordinator works part-time. Emails are monitored on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.)
