You will receive an email confirmation when your PAT Initiation form and Initial Application Review Fee is received at the ABE office; you will be enrolled automatically in the PAT process as of that date. Your first PAT Annual Update will not be required until July 15 of the following calendar year.
As soon as you receive the email notification you may begin crediting psychodrama training hours for students, and accruing consultation hours and professional training hours. Begin keeping records of training offered, consultation received, and professional development obtained.
The first year PAT must obtain regular and routine supervision consisting of one hour of supervision for every three hours of training offered. Training hours can be awarded to trainees and credited only when the supervision requirements for the supervised practicum (one hour supervision for every three hours of training) are met. If this ratio is not maintained the PAT Annual Update will be returned and the PAT will have to reduce training hours to comply with the 1:3 ratio. The PAT will also have to contact those whose training hours are being rescinded due to lack of adequate supervision.
