Accreditation Video Review by Selected IY Mentors
As the IY group leader, coach, and mentor community continue to grow, we are working to increase the capacity for high quality and efficient review of videos that new group leaders submit for the accreditation process. In the past, the majority of reviews have been conducted by trainers in Seattle, and, more recently, some very experienced mentors have begun to do accreditation video reviews.
We have a process for ensuring that video reviews are consistent and reliable across all mentors and trainers who are selected to review videos for accreditation. Learn about this process: Process For Accreditation Video Review By Mentors
For Mentors who have been authorized to provide video review for accreditation/certification, please see these Guidelines to what to look for in video submissions.
Guidelines for Mentors Reviewing Videos for Certification/Accreditation
View Mentor presentations at our annual Mentor Meetings on our “For Researchers” page.
Certified mentors are expected to participate in mentor meetings and consultations with IY trainers every 1-2 years. During these mentor meetings new materials and new research will be presented. In addition, mentors meet to share videotapes of their workshops, groups, and supervision. They share new approaches they have used to training parents and/or new group leaders. New training protocols, handouts and programs are explained at these meetings.
