Back to Our Roots

When we first opened our doors 40 years ago, AATBS was one of the first to offer licensing exam prep for mental health professionals. Over the years we’ve been privileged enough to serve more than half a million therapists, psychologists, social workers, and counselors on their way to getting licensed.

Over the years, we’ve made a lot of friends, listened and gathered feedback, celebrated those who have gotten licensed, and continue to strive to create the best programs for those who entrust us to help them achieve their goals.

Although we’ve grown since 1976, our purpose remains the same as it was when we first opened our doors: to help you succeed in your professional goals so that you in turn can help others.

You may have heard of the Big 5 Personality Traits – five psychological building blocks that form one’s personality. As a company, we’ve created our own Big 5 to create a culture of helpfulness and success.

Here are the top traits we consider necessary to represent AATBS among each other and with you, our customers!

Knowledgeable Passionate Open to Change Friendly Helpful
Know the behavioral health licensing exams inside and out. Be well informed about what we offer and how our products fit a variety of license seekers. Love what we do – our goal is to help our customers succeed in their licensing goals. Accept that everything is a work in progress. Constantly strive to be better. Collect feedback from customers and continually monitor the exams so we can modify our materials to be the best available. Support customers and fellow employees. Be open and friendly to each other and our customers. Value direct feedback and one-on-one communication. Go above and beyond for our customers and our fellow employees. Listen to the customer and help match them to the study tools they need to succeed – never overselling Share and give credit freely.

Our culture and our values define who we are and what we can do for you. For those seeking licensure, we provide a method of study for every type of learner whether it be via books, live workshops, and of course mock exam practice.

If you’ve passed your licensing exam, we offer continuing education so you can expand your skills through professional development, stay up to date on behavioral health topics, and make a difference in the lives of those you serve.

We welcome the opportunity to assist you and future mental health professionals because we know that what you provide is critical to the well-being of the people you serve.

Our responsibility to you is no less important. We value and respect the trust that has been given to us by so many people over the decades.

If you are new to AATBS, welcome. If you are returning, thank you again and welcome back!

We’re excited by how far we’ve come over the last 40 years…and where we’re headed in the future.
