AATBS has supported the needs of over 500,000 mental health professionals throughout the United States and Canada since we opened our doors in 1976.
All prices are subject to change without prior notice. We reserve the right to refuse business and/or to terminate services with anyone for any reason at anytime.
AATBS has a seven (7) day return policy. This period begins upon receipt of the material and extends for a period of seven (7) days. Customers must notify AATBS within this 7-day period should they elect to return unused materials. AATBS does not accept used items, damaged items, or items removed from their shrink wrap. Upon receipt of return authorization from AATBS, customers must ship materials to AATBS at their own expense via a trackable shipping method (i.e., carrier assigns tracking number to shipment). AATBS will not accept packages or process refunds without return authorization by our office. Shipping charges are nonrefundable. In addition, there will be a 20% cancellation/restocking fee, charged to customers, for all cancelled orders and/or returned materials. No refunds or partial refunds will be granted for online products that have been registered. Customers may elect to cancel an unregistered online program within 7 days of purchase; however, there will be a 20% cancellation fee.
A customer who purchases any of our online programs is purchasing an individual license to use AATBS’s proprietary software. Our online programs are comprised of multiple platforms provided in a way to be operated by an individual and will be defined as software. Software consists of carefully organized instructions and code written by programmers in any of various special computer languages. They may be delivered as, but not limited to a web application, mobile application, and/or desktop application.
The purchaser will be granted a license to access the software upon receipt of funds. Access to the software will typically be provided at time of purchase, but may vary dependent on the product. Technical support will be available during business hours should an issue arise. This license is granted to only the original purchaser and, as such, purchaser is not permitted to sell, lend, assign, lease, or transfer in any other way any copy or use of the software. This license is non-transferable. Purchaser also may not sell, lend, assign, lease, or transfer in any other way remaining time to use the software. Any violation of this provision is not permitted and may cause program to be terminated with no refund of the licensing fee paid.
All online programs are active for a limited time period. Time in each component of the program begins when purchaser has opened the component, accepted to start, and agrees to the expiration date. Additional time in the program is available for an additional cost. The information and content contained in any of our online programs remains the property of AATBS. No part of this information or content may be reproduced in any form nor transmitted by any means, mechanical or electronic, without the express written consent of AATBS.
Online programs that are not activated within one (1) year of purchase date may be subject to revision fees for use. Online programs that are not activated within three (3) years of purchase date will be forfeited (customers should expect to pay for a new license to access the current program).
Workshop access, live in-person or online, is only granted to the original purchaser and, as such, the purchaser is not permitted to sell, lend, assign, lease, or transfer in any other way any copy or use of the workshops.
The information and content contained in any of our workshops remains the property of AATBS. No part of this information or content may be reproduced in any form nor transmitted by any means, mechanical or electronic, without the express written consent of AATBS.

The offer to participate in a future workshop, however, is only valid for one (1) year from the date of purchase.

We may collect personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, or other identifiers that you may provide in the course of completing a form or transaction on our site or mobile application. Portions of our site may collect additional information from individuals using those features, such as accepting resumes from job applicants or collecting applications of financial aid information from students and applicants.
We may collect information about the browser and/or device that you are using to access our website or mobile application (such as the type of browser or device you are using, browser settings, and the device identification number). Device information may or may not be personally identifiable depending upon whether it is linked to the identity of the user.
We may automatically log information, such as a user's IP address, domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and other log file data. This information may be used to analyze trends or administer our websites and mobile applications. We may collect statistical or non-personally identifiable information about our users, such as which pages are visited, how long a visitor stays on a particular page, the website from which a user came to our site, or similar such information. We also may collect aggregate information such as the total number of unique or return visitors to our site, using our application, or visiting a particular page in a given time frame. We may use this information to measure the use of our sites and applications and to improve our content. We may use Google Analytics, a third-party provider of analytics tools, or a similar third-party service to analyze information about visits to our website. For information about opting out of Google Analytics, please visit: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Yes, we may utilize "cookies," web beacons, and other similar technologies on our website. We may use first- and/or third-party "browser" or "HTTP" cookies, which are unique text files that may be used for data analysis, and enable our website to tailor information and customized functionality for the visitor. We may use browser cookies for purposes such as to personalize the user's experience on our site, to remember a user when the user registers for products or services, for fraud prevention, or to track visits to our websites. We also may use "web beacons" (also referred to as pixel tags, clear gifs, or other terms) or similar technologies to collect information such as how long a visitor remains on a particular page. If you do not want us to deploy browser cookies to your device when you visit our websites, you may set the browser to reject cookies or to notify the user when a website tries to place cookies in the browser program (see below). Rejecting cookies may affect your ability to use some of features offered by our website and/or programs.
Third parties, including our service providers or marketing partners, may collect information about a visitor to our site over time and/or across different websites when the visitor uses our website. This information often is aggregate data or individual information that is tied to a browser or device rather than specific identifiers such as the visitor's name and address, but some of this information might be considered to be personally identifiable under some federal or state laws.
Some Internet browsers have begun to offer what often is referred to as "do not track" mechanisms for browser users to automatically signal privacy preferences to websites that they visit. Internet browsers have begun to include these features relatively recently, and there is not yet a consensus about what steps a website should take when it receives a do-not-track signal from a site visitor's browser or what information collection or use restrictions should be applied when a do-not-track signal is received. As a result, our site(s) do not currently respond to do-not-track signals. We are continuing to monitor do-not-track developments and may revisit the issue in the future. In the meantime, you can exercise other choices available to you, including limiting the placement of browser cookies on your device using your browser's cookie control features and other choices described in this Policy.
We may use the information we collect through our site or mobile application for the following purposes:
We do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you except as set forth in this Policy.

In other cases, such as Web forms that you may submit through the site, if you would like to obtain a copy of the information you provided, you can contact us at email@example.com. When you update information, we may keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
Exceptions to access and correction rights may include:

We recognize that you may be concerned about the security of your personal information, and we are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our website. Even with such technology, no website is 100% secure. We take reasonable measures that we believe are appropriate to protect your information from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. We will ask any agents and service providers to whom we may transfer your information to take comparable steps to protect that security.
