Summary

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 for educators 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. 

TE-MAS-12 is an advanced course, available to the graduates of the TE-16, TE-20, and TE-24 courses. TE-MAS continues the learning process initiated in the prerequisite courses for risk assessment and protection plan application.
