    South Carolina Infant Mental Health Association's Reflective Supervision Learning Collaborative (RSLC) is a 12-month process comprised of learning sessions, web-based reflection experiences and active implementation phases. Support is built in throughout the process. 

    The program is designed for supervisors within the infant/early childhood program space, including:

    Child Welfare Programs
    Early Care and Education
    Early Intervention
    Home Visiting
    And More!

    - Learn the essential elements of reflective supervision along with structural tools and strategies to build, sustain and deepen reflective practice 
    - Broaden their understanding and increase their confidence in supporting others through reflective supervision
    - Learn to implement and sustain reflective supervision within their program, resulting in a return on investment and enhanced agency practice for years to come
    - Observe reflective supervision sessions, participate in small group discussions and share experiences with peers working towards the same goal
    - Receive up to 24 hours of reflective consultation which can be applied to the Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health®
    - Learn in a relaxed, team-based environment that builds from the collective knowledge and experience of the group
    - Connect with peers, broaden professional networks and learn about additional training and professional development opportunities

    Each participant will receive up to 24 hours of reflective consultation by a vetted reflective supervisor. RSLC groups consisting of five members will meet online monthly for two-hour periods over the period of one year. The monthly reflective consultation hours that participants receive will meet the reflective supervision requirements for Endorsement. Additionally, the reflective supervision hours that supervisors provide to their own staff members may prepare staff for their own Endorsement application. 

    This learning collaborative is designed for masters prepared professionals who supervise infant/early childhood professionals and are ready to implement reflective supervision within their programs and pursue Endorsement upon completion of the experience. 

    While previous experience providing reflective supervision is not a requirement for participation, it is helpful to have some basic knowledge and understanding of the subject.

    In lieu of a master's degree, you may list training, experience and personal or professional insights that have led to your interest in participating in the learning collaborative. 

    SCIMHA is working to promote and expand the delivery of reflective supervision by endorsed professionals across the state. The education requirement is consistent with Endorsement standards for reflective supervisors. 

    The 12-month learning collaborative is $1,400 per participant. It includes:
    - Three training sessions, each 2.5 hours long 
    - All training materials
    - Reflective consultation facilitated by an Endorsed® reflective supervisor (done monthly in groups of five for two-hour sessions)
    - Endorsement application fee
    - Registration for SCIMHA's annual conference

    SCIMHA is offering a small subsidy for individuals seeking to participate in the learning collaborative who do not have the financial support of an organization. Please contact Susan Callahan for more information.

    The FAN (Facilitating Attuned Interactions) Approach serves as a framework for parent engagement and reflective practice in work with young children and families. FAN addresses urgent concerns of the parent or caregiver and trains practitioners to tailor their responses to match the needs of the moment. FAN also helps practitioners recognize how their own internal sense of regulation or dysregulation affects their abilities to be fully present with a family in the moment. 

    This training offers strategies to help practitioners feel balanced in activating or high risk situations. FAN provides an approach to reflective practice that can be utilized by staff and supervisors using the ARC of Engagement to structure staff/supervision and promote collaboration throughout. 

    SCIMHA encourages staff or team participation in FAN Training in order to maximize the impact within your organization or agency. Priority will be given to teams committed to integrating the FAN Approach into its work.
