Are there rules around who
I can receive RS/C from?

Yes, a provider of Reflective Supervision/Consultation must be Endorsement or vetted at qualifying category. Reach out to an Endorsement coordinator to find out who qualifies as a provider for your category. Beginning January 2023 WA-AIMH will no longer recognize vetted status and all RS/C providers must be Endorsed.

IMPORTANT!

Beginning January 1, 2022, all new Endorsement applicants are required to receive all RS/C hours
from an Endorsed provider in order to meet the requirements for Endorsement. 

Can I receive reflective supervision from someone who is not endorsed?

Beginning January 2023 WA-AIMH will no longer recognize vetted status and all RS/C providers must be endorsed in order for the hours to count towards Endorsement.
