Registered Behavior Technician at Behavior Change Institute

Just forwarding this so you can pass it on if you know anyone looking for a job. They don’t need any experience with autism and the company puts them through all the training for the certification. They just have to pay to take the exam. Training takes a month and is unpaid. Starting compensation is $16.63 or something close to that. Part of that is a gas stipend so it isn’t taxable (just a bonus). Have them put my name, Jasmine Carpenter, down as a referral so I can get an ipad if they get hired. 🙂

Off-Center needs a new Board Member!

I hope that you can pass this information on to NMATA members, and other potentially interested Art Therapists. I am hoping that there might be an Art Therapist who would be interested in joining the Board of Directors of OFFCenter Community Arts Project in downtown Albuquerque.
I have served on the OFFCenter Board for the past six years, and it is time for me to step down. It has been a wonderful experience and I will continue to be involved with OFFCenter in other ways. For those of you who are not familiar with OFFCenter, it is a non-profit arts organization that was started by Art Therapist, Janis Timm-Bottos and other community members in 2001. The mission has been to promote positive self-identity and resilience through artistic expression in a safe, accessible studio space where all people can participate in meaningful social interactions through art making ( All ages and abilities are welcome.
If any of you are interested, please contact Mary Reed, president of the OFFCenter Board of Directors (505-850-8306), or contact Bob Allen, Executive Director at OFFCenter (505-247-1172;, for more information.
