NIATx Virtual Change Leader Academy (Series 1)

The NIATx Virtual Change Leader Academy is the new 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. An optional follow-up series consists of four monthly individual and group coaching sessions. This training is offered at no cost and is supported by funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).



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



Registrants who complete all four weekly virtual session will be eligible to receive 5.5 NAADAC CEUs. An additional 3.5 NAADAC CEUs will be available to registrants who complete all assignments and attend all optional monthly coaching sessions.
