Mission and mandate  

The Forum Newsletter is a quarterly online publication for ATSA members to communicate about clinical practice, research synopsis/translation, member perspectives, and practical resources to support readers in the prevention of sexual abuse. The Forum is also a source of relevant ATSA organizational updates, such as conference planning and legislative information. The Forum is where new members are introduced, and awards are announced (after the conference), and it is intended to support ATSA members in their practice by providing relevant and current information through feature articles, the FAQ column, and book reviews.
