The IMH-DP training project is an intra-university collaboration between the Institute for Parenting through University College and Adelphi graduate programs that have the capacity to prepare interested students to work as related services personnel: Social Work, Mental Health Counseling, Speech-Language Pathology and School Psychology. The training spans 15 consecutive months. Candidates commence IMH-DP in June, directly following the first year of their SW, SLP or MHC programs or after the second year of SPSYCH. Candidates will temporarily leave their primary program to matriculate into the 15-month IMH-DP training project. They will then matriculate back into their primary program in September, graduating the following May being license-eligible in their degree program and having training as IMH specialists. This training will prepare candidates for positions working with 0-5 year olds and for Endorsement eligibility in IMH-DP through the New York State Association of Infant Mental Health.
