The Future of Art Therapy Licensing Virtual Session
Recorded On: 06/09/2022
- Registration Closed
AATA’s Policy and Public Affairs Manager, Tyler Kirby, will lead a discussion about the future of licensure in the art therapy profession.
While the AATA National Office, local chapters, and volunteer teams have been working to secure independent licensure for art therapists for some time, it is now more important than ever. Upcoming changes to the LPC will restrict the ability of art therapists to qualify for licensure as an LPC (licensed professional counselor). The paths that art therapists have traditionally used to gain licensure in the absence of an art therapy specific license are closing for incoming professionals. Regardless of whether your practice will be affected, these changes may be detrimental to the future of art therapy as a profession.
Please join us to learn more about the specific problems the profession is facing and how you can get involved to help art therapists secure licensure across the country! Participating in licensure advocacy efforts not only helps advance the profession, but it’s an exciting way to engage and build relationships with other art therapists in your community.
Eligible participants will receive 1.0 CEU for the session.
This virtual session is open to all AATA members. If you have any accommodation requests, please email email@example.com.
