    About the NTI
    ZERO TO THREE is a national nonprofit organization that informs, trains, and supports professionals, policymakers, and parents
    in their efforts to improve the lives of infants and toddlers.
    Our mission is to promote the health and development of infants and toddlers. We achieve this by translating research and
    knowledge—specifically information about the kinds of early experiences that help children thrive—into a range of practical tools
    and resources for use by the adults who influence the lives of young children.

    Every year, ZERO TO THREE provides an unparalleled opportunity for multidisciplinary professionals to enhance their
    knowledge about early childhood development through our National Training Institute (NTI). The NTI offers opportunities to
    network with colleagues and leaders in our field. Interactive and thought-provoking sessions have been carefully planned to enrich
    your knowledge and inform your practice.

    A5 (Symposium) Demystifying Reflective
    Supervision: Perspectives on the Process                S PD

    Reflective Supervision/Consultation (RS/C) is a significant
    workforce development issue that many believe affects the
    quality of service and best practice in infant/early childhood
    and family programs. However, important questions remain
    about what it is and how to enter into RS/C relationships in
    a variety of service settings. Presenters will make the process
    concrete by describing and illustrating key elements of RS/C
    in this interactive session.

                               The Emily Fenichel Memorial NTI Scholarship
          ZERO TO THREE is pleased to announce the availability of 10 NTI scholarships (in the amount of $200
          each) in honor of Emily Fenichel’s nearly 30 years of service to the infant/family field through her work at
          ZERO TO THREE. Among Emily’s many roles, she was the editor of the Zero to Three Journal, Editor-
          in-Chief of the ZERO TO THREE Press, and one of the first coordinators of the NTI. Her vision and
          commitment were instrumental in establishing the NTI as the premier conference for the infant/family field
          and her love for and dedication to babies and families is remembered.

          To request a scholarship application, contact Bill McCall at bmccall@zerotothree.org.
          The application deadline is October 8, 2010. Winners will be informed by October 20, 2010.
