The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) is dedicated to preventing sexual abuse before an offense is ever perpetrated. Although the majority of ATSA's prevention work has focused on research, treatment and management of those individuals who have already abused, many ATSA members are also active in primary prevention activities.
