Delta Autumn Training Academy is a Continuing Education website for mental healthcare providers. Not accidentally, our acronym is DATA, which is representative of what we value above all else. If you tour our site everything you will find is built on scientific evidence and includes consideration of how to adapt research for real-life application.
We can make some claim about our ability to do this because our founders are both clinicians in private practice and professors responsible for graduate clinical training (among approximately 1,000 other things). Our scientific knowledge is the basis for our practice, and our practice gives us insight about how to make science fit into the context of healthcare service provision. We hope to pass both on to y’all as you read, watch, listen, and learn.
Additionally, you may notice that we try to have a sense of humor as we go about discussion of what can sometimes be very dense topics. This is by design, as we operate under the belief that we don’t always need to be serious to take things seriously. This will hopefully make the process of clinical education engaging and fun (at least as much as it can be). We get that there’s work to be done, but it doesn’t have to be painful…and our biggest goal is to convey information that you can actually use to make a difference in your practice and the lives of those you serve.
