Gain Credentials from the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB)
The Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB) is the credentialing organization for art therapy. In 1993, the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB) was created by the American Art Therapy Association (AATA) to serve as the national credentialing body for art therapy.
Now an independent organization, the ATCB creates and maintains standards associated with earning art therapy credentials. The mission of the ATCB is to protect the public by promoting the competent and ethical practice of art therapy. In response to its mission, the ATCB offers two credentials; Registered Art Therapist (ATR), and Board-Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC). Both of these credentials are solely owned and granted by the ATCB. Credential holders must adhere to the ATCB’s Code of Professional Practice, thus ensuring that the public is protected.
