TOPICS COVERED IN THIS MEETING INCLUDE:

What is the purpose of the NJ-AIMH Endorsement?

The purpose of the NJ-AIMH Endorsement (IMH-E®) is to recognize and document the development of infant and family professionals within an organized system of culturally sensitive, relationship-based, infant mental health learning and work experiences.

What does the NJ-AIMH Endorsement mean for professionals?

This process establishes four different levels of endorsement appropriate for the variety of professional disciplines representing the field of infant mental health.  Endorsement by the New Jersey Association for Infant Mental Health (NJ-AIMH) will verify that an applicant has attained a level of education, participated in specialized professional education and development, worked with guidance from mentors or supervisors, and acquired knowledge to promote the delivery of high quality, culturally sensitive, relationship-focused services to infants, toddlers, parents, other caregivers and families.

What does the NJ-AIMH Endorsement mean for employers and stakeholders?

The NJ-AIMH Endorsement (IMH-E®) will provide information of significant benefit to employers, referral sources, and the courts seeking expert witnesses related to the social and emotional development of infants and young children and their families. Of additional importance, the MI-AIMH Endorsement (IMH-E®) will be useful in developing individual professional development plans.
