Classroom Confidentiality Agreement

Every PACT participant will keep any and all classroom disclosures, classroom videos, and all other sensitive classroom material confidential. This agreement does not end when the course ends; it continues throughout the PACT student’s lifetime.

Classroom Conduct

The goal of PACT training is for students to learn and practice the PACT methodology. As teachers, we must honor our commitment to our students to deliver the curriculum, as promised, and teach PACT so that it can be implemented effectively.

To complete the curriculum in the time allotted, all students and instructors must focus on the lesson at hand. Because we cover a lot of material during each course, we must all do our best to stay on task.

We cannot resolve all issues during PACT training. In particular, PACT equity work is slow and intentional, and much of it happens in our daily work “behind the scenes” at the Institute. On the other hand, PACT training moves quickly. Therefore, when an issue arises during the training that cannot be resolved quickly, the instructor will focus on completing the curriculum to preserve the integrity of the training.

If a student feels an issue was not resolved during training, we invite the student to fill out this form so that we can continue the conversation outside of the training.

Registering as a PACT student

When registering as a student of the PACT Institute, you will create an account (profile) that you can access on the site. You will be able to login to see all the events you are currently registered for, make basic updates to your account information, and make payments.

Access to the Student Library will be retained by all students in good standing. PACT reserves the right to terminate an account at any time.

Proprietary Information

The training manual, PowerPoint presentations, videos, handouts, and other class materials are considered proprietary information and may not be reproduced or cited by PACT students or alumni.

Please do not share your login information with anyone.

ADA Compliance

In accordance with the American with Disability Act (ADA), please contact us at [email protected] at least 2 weeks before the program if you need special accommodations.

Physical Touch Policy

As PACT clinicians in a professional setting, we do not initiate physical touching with our clients. Any touch, if we find it necessary during our work, requires permission from the client(s). This also applies to working with colleagues in PACT training.

Grievance Policy

The PACT Institute is committed to conducting all activities in conformance with the ethical principles of the APA, NBCC, and NYSED. We comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content, and treatment of program participants. We take full responsibility for the monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards.

While we assure fair treatment for all participants, we recognize that from time to time issues may require our intervention and/or action. Our guidelines for handling such grievances are as follows:

  1. If a participant files a grievance, either orally or in written format, we will respond promptly and in good faith. The note need not be signed by the grieved individual.
  2. If the grievance concerns a program offering, program content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the program was offered, and the participant requests action, we will review each grievance in light of the fair, just, sensitive, and equitable standards we uphold. If we are not able to rectify the grievance or reasonably resolve the issue, we will (a) provide a fee credit toward a future program or (b) provide a partial or full refund of the program fee. Actions 2a and 2b will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping­­ purposes. All refund considerations are at the discretion of the PACT Institute.


The PACT Institute will make every reasonable effort to assure your privacy. We will never sell your information. We will not share your personal information except as necessary to comply with the reporting requirements of the various accrediting organizations that enable us to provide CE credit or if required to do so by governmental or law enforcement agencies. We do not retain or store any credit card payment information on our server.
