The NIATx Virtual Change Leader Academy is the web-based version of the popular NIATx Change Leader Academy (CLA). The CLA has given thousands of behavioral health organizations the tools to make real changes that improve their systems of care. This interactive, expert-led program includes four weekly 90-minute learning sessions.
After completing the four weekly sessions, an optional organizational consultation is available to those who fully attended the training series.
Participants in the virtual CLA will learn:
- The NIATx principles and how they motivate positive change
- How to build a change team and integrate NIATx principles at the organizational level
- How to conduct a change project to improve a specific process within their organization
A certificate for 6 NAADAC continuing education hours will be emailed to participants who attend the two-part training session in full. Partial credits will not be awarded.
