ATSA Member: A person who provides clinical services to, or conducts research, prevention, or program management of, individuals who have engaged in or are at risk of sexual offending. No degree or hour requirements’. Examples include: Psychologists, therapists, social workers, medical practitioners, academics, researchers, program administrators, and others with similar duties.
ATSA Clinical Member: An enhanced membership category for those with at least a master’s degree who have (1) conducted 2,000 hours or more of direct clinical services (assessment, individual and/or group treatment) to individuals who have engaged in sexual offending behavior and (2) are dedicated to pursuing a certain amount of continuing education units (CEUs) annually. While not a form of certification, it officially documents one’s ongoing training hours and provides evidence for employers who require continuing education. Additional nominal fees will apply in 2022 due to the administrative costs to verify CEU’s.
