Thank you to everyone who participated in and helped promote the DEI Committee’s Listening Session series over the last couple of months! Twelve groups were facilitated by The Ivy Planning Group. Throughout this series over 100 art therapists, art therapy students, AATA members, and non-members participated, contributing feedback about their experiences and views related to DEI in the art therapy field and within the AATA. We appreciate the time each participant volunteered to show up and contribute to this important process. We value the feedback and conversations that were shared. These voices, experiences, and views about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of art therapy and the AATA will help us create sustainable change and a shift in culture for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive profession.
