Is competency required to use the TANT method?
The goal of the TANT training and method is to provide access to a trauma resolution tool. There has not been any report of adverse events or complications in using the TANT method. Competency is recommended to support clinicians in their use of this method. The Level One Competency requirements are designed to support being able to use this method as effectively as possible. If a provider decides to do supervision and to focus on supporting fidelity to the use of the TANT model, then pursuing TANT Level Two competency is recommended.

How do I know if TANT is the best method to use?
The choice of which trauma resolution method to use when helping someone resolve trauma related symptoms and/or behaviors requires informed consent and collaboration. This is a very important issue in helping someone heal. This is covered in detail during the TANT Level One workshop and is also reviewed during the TANT technical assistance calls. It may be necessary to use supervision and consultation to address these concerns.
