Endorsement®: An Overview

The Oklahoma Association for Infant Mental Health identifies and promotes the development of a qualified workforce to support the emotional development of infants, toddlers and families.

The intent of the Endorsement (IMH-E®) by the Oklahoma Association for Infant Mental Health (OK-AIMH) 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. Endorsement® by the Oklahoma Association for Infant Mental Health (OK-AIMH) will verify that an applicant has attained a level of education as specified, participated in specialized in-service trainings, 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. Endorsement® provides information of significant value to employers and referral sources related to the social and emotional development of infants and young children and their families. The OK-AIMH Endorsement (IMH-E®) is exceptionally useful in guiding individual professional development plans.
