Got questions about coming to AATA2023? Here are some questions from AATA members and the answers.
Our volunteer Board Members not only play a pivotal role in planning the annual conference, but they love attending! So we asked them what makes AATA conferences so special. We’re sharing some of their answers with you.
The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) awarded initial accreditation to the Art Therapy master’s programs at the Dominican University of California in San Rafael, California, and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
Shared Interest Groups, or SIGs, were created to help art therapists find community at conference – and year-round through the MyAATA Member Community. SIGs are led by AATA members to create connection and a space for art therapists to support each other. Please join a SIG according to your interests and based on how you personally identify. Register for AATA2023.
