Applications are considered on a first-come, first served basis, with priority given to
supervisors who are working toward their NYS-AIMH Endorsement®.
“Often described as a relationship for learning, RS/C develops through a compassionate,
authentic relationship, where thoughts, feelings, knowledge and wonderings are
cultivated on behalf of a deeper understanding of the infant, young child, and family, of
the practitioner, and of a relationally driven, developmentally appropriate, culturally
responsive intervention approach… RS/C has been considered a Trauma Informed
Practice; an approach to mitigating vicarious trauma as well as staff turnover, and a
means to ensure best practice.“

Loss, and Inequity on Behalf of Babies and Their Families” by Fitzgibbons, Smith, and McCormick (2018)
