Art Therapy Today
As a way to honor AAPI Heritage Month, join us for this opportunity to critically examine the lenses that we use to perceive race, cultures, art, and identities from social-justice oriented perspectives. What does it mean to be an Asian/Asian American art therapist in the United States in 2023?

On April 26, AATA participated on a panel briefing coordinated by the National Foster Youth Institute (NFYI) to educate Congressional staffers about access to mental health care, including art therapy. The American Music Therapy Association also participated, along with dance and movement therapists and equine therapists. The goal of the briefing was to advance legislation that would increase the availability of tailored mental health care options for foster youth.
As art therapists prepare for the upcoming ATCB renewal deadline, we wanted to answer some questions that we received from AATA members about their continuing education options.
