Supervision and Accountability

We help staff develop the  knowledge, skills, and connections to help their clients 

successfully transition through the stages of change. 

We help staff work effectively with system partners, community agencies, administrators, and most importantly, each other. 

Being a professional and acting 

professional gets confusing. Being an asset to others means being an asset to oneself. Through our Engagement Model, we show staff the benefits of being "a professional front  line worker" and acting  "professional."

Managing client and organizational demands is key to success - and in some cases, survival. ATC offers staff an opportunity to enhance their competence as a supervisee and demonstrate greater accountability for their work, safety, and outcomes.
