Will my ATR-BC credentials be enough for me to get a job as an art therapist?
Good question! And a hot topic for AATA and training programs. Many art therapists hold positions with their ATR or ATR-BC. Some art therapists had to have a license, even with having art therapy credentials. Some of our art therapists have chosen to get their license in professional counseling (LPC), which required taking extra coursework for most of them. If it is important for you to be able to get a license, and since no licenses for art therapy are available yet in Georgia, you may want to be sure your art therapy program includes counseling courses required to obtain your LPC, or other license.
