Maintenance and Accountability

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 in the course you took? Participation in our longitudinal, follow-up Maintenance and Accountability Seminar can address all these questions and more. These weekly, faculty-moderated teleconferences 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.

When we asked long-time participants of this course "What keeps you coming back?" they answered with the following:

  • PBI is the single most effective safeguard against recidivism
  • To deepen my understanding of my risk factors and vulnerabilities
  • Because integrating all this is a gradual process
  • To incorporate what I’ve learned into my world view
  • To learn about commonalities across different professions
  • Because I can never know enough
  • To decrease isolation, shame, and embarrassment
  • It makes me sharper for the week
  • It doesn’t allow what we’ve learned to fade away
  • It reminds me how easy it is to lose the privilege to practice
  • It decreases the potential for complacency to develop
  • It reminds me how simple things get people into trouble
  • It increases my alertness
  • It reminds me how we can develop resistances without knowing it
  • I have someone I can talk to
