The Professional Certificate of Advanced Studies in Art Therapy gives clinicians the skills and knowledge they need to competently, confidently, and ethically incorporate art therapy into their practice.  Students will study the history and tenets of art therapy, learn how to use art therapy assessments, studio art techniques and engage an art therapy group process. The Professional Certificate consists of thirty credits and a clinical internship, and is designed for professionals who have already earned a graduate degree in counseling or a related mental health discipline. The Professional Certificate prepares graduates to become a Registered Art Therapist (ATR).
