It is expected that everyone involved with Australian Resource Centre for P.T.S.D LTD will implement and demonstrate in their practice ARC4PTSD vision and values.
In addition, it is expected that all ARC4PTSD Policies will be implemented in a professional and ethical manner. Quality and integrity are important to ARC4PTSD, and everyone is expected to participate in ongoing activities and self-evaluation reviews.
ARC4PTSD has a strategic plan in place to support the future operation and direction of the organisation in achieving its aims.
