Extended Follow-Up

Maintenance and Accountability Seminars (MAS-12)


How can you prevent what you’ve learned from fading away? How do you deal with the feeling of isolation when you are involved in the disciplinary process? How do you continue the process of remediation that began during your course? Our extended follow-up program, Maintenance and Accountability Seminars (MAS-12), can address all these questions and more. These weekly, faculty-led teleconference seminars deepen participants’ understanding, elevate their accountability through revisiting their Personalized Protection Plans, and engage them in a multi-disciplinary community of peer review and support. 

Note: Prerequisite of completion of prior live PBI course or comparable course through another remedial education provider.

  • "My favorite part of my entire PBI curriculum was that it was a safe, respectful, and non-judgemental space. I felt supported and validated, which I definitely did not expect in this context- especially as a student. The other participants and I are facing very different situations, but what they all have in common is profound isolation. The course alleviated some of this isolation for me by validating my experiences with unbiased perspectives, providing support and valuable insights/advice that I otherwise did not have access to. "
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "I believe the MAS sessions are really quite essential to the overall comprehensiveness of the individual courses. I did not realize this at the time of the course and initially felt that MAS was excessive. However, once I started participating I realized their essential importance to the overall program. "
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "Really a very worthwhile course extension of the primary material. Very useful to hear people's stories, and helpful to know how to avoid pitfalls in my own practice."
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "Thank you PBI, from the bottom of my heart, as the course moderators were professional enough to give proper guidance and human enough to listen and care through one the the darkest periods of my life!"
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "The Personal Protection Plan I created as a result of the course will guide me on a daily basis to guard against any ‘drift’ in the direction of boundary transgressions. "
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "I gained more objective tools to help guide me through the period of stress and turmoil. By focusing on the objective data, I was able to complete my tasks and implement changes to improve my professional and personal work environment. Overall, by staying objective, I was able to refocus my time and energy to obtain a better quality of life."

  • "I always learn from MAS - not only about the shared experiences, but also about myself and interacting with others. (Seven Time MAS Graduate)"
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "The MAS courses have been invaluable not only in maintaining accountability but also with respect to broadening my own learning, particularly as I incorporate lessons learned in other PBI courses such as developing a better understanding of emotional intelligence."
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "This course was by far the best learning I have had in years. I felt heard, supported, and held accountable. I gained the courage to accept an appointment as an ethics chair - my violation being 11 years ago - life gets better. PBI was life-changing."
    - Maintenance and Accountability Course Graduate
  • "PBI is the single most effective safeguard against recidivism."
