  2. Provide clinical staff with cutting edge science and evidence-based training in assessment, prevention and treatment, as well as up-to-date information regarding legal, ethical, and supervisory issues.
  3. Promote among the clinical staff the maintenance, development, and continued increase in their knowledge base and areas of competency, in order to best serve the needs of our clients and community.

ATI Instructors

Course instructors are established professionals in their field. Instructors are chosen based on their experience in the field and with the topic of presentation.
