How can I become a Registered Art Therapist (ATR), and then obtain Board Certification (BC)?
AATA regulates the educational, professional, and ethical standards for art therapists, while the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB) can grant your Registration (ATR) after you have fulfilled their requirements for education, supervision and direct client contact hours. An ATR who successfully passes the written examination required to obtain Board Certification is granted ATR-BC credentials by the ATCB. This credential is maintained through Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Click here to contact the ATCB. The ethical standards of practice from the ATCB can be downloaded by clicking here.
