Credentialing & Licensure: What Every Arts Therapist Should Know

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 705


Professional credentialing is a hallmark of competency, and every creative arts therapy discipline has a professional organization and/or credentialing body that protects consumers by credentialing competent therapists. Board certification indicates that the therapist has passed a scientifically-produced examination within a nationally accredited certification program. Licensing gives the expressive therapist the legal right to practice a profession, use a specific title, and moreover, protects the public by ensuring minimum standards of competency, and holding licensees accountable for their professional practice. As licensing is subject to laws specific to each state, this lunchtime session will focus on the licensing standards in the state of New York, and is geared towards art therapy students and recent graduates. It will provide an opportunity to participate in an exchange about the credentialing process for creative arts therapies and will also explain the difference between professional credentialing and state licensure.

Eligible for 1 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
