Florida Endorsement® Registry

Endorsement involves a standardized process to determine that a professional has accumulated specialized experiences in the infant and early childhood field and has signed a Code of Ethics. All applicants receive a copy of the Code of Ethics. An applicant’s experiences are documented by the submission of an application that details competency-based training, specialized work experiences, and for most, reflective supervision/consultation (RSC) experiences. The application also includes official transcripts and three reference ratings. Endorsees as Infant Mental Health Specialist and Infant Mental Health Mentor have passed an exam that includes measures of theoretical knowledge, direct service skills, and their capacity to apply these principles into practice. This exam is scored by a team of two reviewers who are blind to the identity of the examinee. 

 

To maintain Endorsement also requires ongoing training and, in the cases of Infant Family Specialist, Infant Health Specialist and Infant Mental Health Mentor-Clinical, ongoing RSC. Endorsees are also required to re-commit to upholding the Code of Ethics annually. Beginning in January of 2023, this commitment includes signing an attestation that the endorsee has not been sanctioned by a licensing board.

 

Endorsement is not a professional license or a certificate. FIMH-E® cannot guarantee the quality of service of any endorsed professional. FIMH-E® does not include a process by which complaints or concerns regarding ethics can be filed. If one becomes aware of possible ethics violations by an endorsed professional, complainants are encouraged to, when applicable, contact the individual's professional licensing board. The FIMH-E® does not offer monitoring for ethics violations, however if FAIMH learns that an endorsed professional has been sanctioned by a licensing board, the individual is moved to the Inactive Endorsement Registry.

 

You can view the Endorsement® Policies and Procedures and contact the Endorsement Coordinator at endorsement@faimh.org for more details.

We are proud to have the following professionals in communities throughout Florida who have earned the Endorsement for Culturally Relevant, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health®.

Endorsement Leaders, in bold, are professionals who support Endorsement® by advising applicants, reviewing applications, vetting Reflective Supervisors/Consultants, or who served in the leadership of FAIMH as we launched Endorsement® in our state. FAIMH is deeply grateful for their service & support.
