Our training is conducted to maximize the transfer of learning through activities, role-plays, and real-life scenarios as well as research and field testing.

ATC builds staff and managers' intellectual & mental conditioning: what they need to know about themselves and how their characteristics and behaviors play a role in personal safety and professional success. We train staff and managers on planning safe community contacts: analyzing, evaluating, and managing risks before during, and after a home or community contact. We reinforce personal awareness: identifying “Internal Factors” such as, personal commitment to safety, personal bias awareness, vulnerabilities, crisis rehearsal. In addition to “External Factors,” such as, job expectations, policy restrictions and the physical environment in which work is performed.
