What is Endorsement®?
Endorsement® is cross-sector and multidisciplinary including professionals from children and/or human development, education, nursing, psychiatry, psychology, social work and others. Endorsement® indicates an individual's efforts to specialize in the promotion/practice of IECMH within their chosen discipline. It provides recognition of specialized knowledge and expertise in professionals working with or on behalf of children, birth through six, and their families. Endorsement® is meant to honor professionals who apply infant & early childhood mental health principles to their practice. It is granted through documentation and verification of the required specialized education, work, in-service training, and reflective supervision/consultation experiences. Endorsement® is not a license but an overlay that complements one’s professional license and/or other credentials.
