The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) represents professionals committed to the welfare of their clientele, the community and their professional colleagues. Based upon a foundation of theory and research, as well as knowledge and skill professions are self-regulating. An inherent assumption in this process is the adoption and adherence to a Code of Ethics. ATSA’s Code of Ethics is intended to reflect scientifically informed and professionally accepted beliefs regarding professional behavior and conduct.
As members of ATSA, a voluntary association whose members accept its
ethical standards as part of their choice to affiliate, the membership has both expected duties to perform, as well as rights to be protected.
The Code of Ethics and the companion document, ATSA Standards and Guidelines, are available for purchase. Download the Order Form.
Additionally, the Code of Ethics can be downloaded in its entirety.
