The maintenance or distribution of any list of clinicians who chose to indicate that they provide services to individuals with sexually abusive behavior problems does not constitute an endorsement or verification of the credentials of those individuals by MATSA or any of its members. Inclusion on a resource directory of providers on the MATSA website does not constitute a license to practice, a measure of competency of the professional whose name appears, or any form of endorsement. Similarly, non-inclusion does not signify a failure to meet such criteria, as well. Neither MATSA nor its membership bear any responsibility for the quality of services provided by individuals and/or agencies appearing on this list; this remains the responsibility of the individual provider.
