The Value of Endorsement®
We are beginning to gather data across all Alliance state associations about the impact of the Endorsement®. Among the questions to be answered:
- How does Endorsement® affect a professional’s sense of competence?
- What are the outcomes for infants and families who receive services from an Endorsed® professional as compared to a non-Endorsed® professional?
- Do programs who hire or require Endorsed® professionals have lower staff turnover?
The Infant Toddler Mental Health Coalition of Arizona has recently published results of a survey about the perceptions of Endorsement® which can be found at http://www.itmhca.org/pdfs/ITMHCAsurvey-2016.pdf
What Endorsed professionals* are saying:
How has Endorsement® changed your understanding of infant mental health?
How has participation in Endorsement® benefited you professionally?
How has participation in Endorsement® benefited the infants and families you serve?
*These survey results come from professionals in Colorado and Michigan
