Conduct Training Qualified for Continuing Education Credits
Approval of Educational Program for Continuing Education Credits – The American Art Therapy Association is committed to professional development activities. The continuing education program approval service acknowledges the function of quality continuing education experiences in achieving professional mastery. The American Art Therapy Association educational program approval is a voluntary process of appraising and granting recognition conducted by the Continuing Education Committee to qualify programs that meet established standards based on predetermined criteria. The purpose of the Association CECs is to enhance professional competence of the Association members and to develop and promote knowledge in and of the profession of art therapy.
Approval assures participants that programs meet professional continuing education standards and provide participants with continuing education credit for the following:
  • Renewal of state licensure or certification
  • Voluntary professional certification
  • Recertification requirements
  • Continuing education requirements 
The American Art Therapy Association reviews training programs in the field of art therapy and coordinates National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) approval  for programs that meet the educational requirements.

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.
