Weatherston, Deborah J.; Moss, Barbara Dowler; Harris, Deborah
Zero to Three, v26 n3 p4-13 Jan 2006
In 1994, The Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health (MI-AIMH) began the development of a credentialing process to define the skills and experiences needed by professionals in the infant mental health field. This article describes MI-AIMH's process to identify competencies for best practices and to establish a comprehensive system for the endorsement of practitioners in the infant and family field. The article also describes how the Texas Association for Infant Mental Health and the New Mexico Association for Infant Mental Health collaborated with MI-AIMH to purchasing a license to use the MI-AIMH competencies and endorsement materials to build their own state-specific endorsement program.
