Founded in 1977 to unite and promote the emerging profession of art therapy in Canada. Art therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate. There are certain qualifications required of art therapists. In Canada and the United States, art therapists must have at minimum a master’s degree or a master’s level diploma in Art Therapy before identifying themselves within the profession.
