To whom it may concern:
As an art therapist I receive countless refers I am unable to take on as I very rarely have space in my case load. Our state would greatly benefit from more art therapist who are able to have licensure solely as an art therapist. Additionally, art therapy is a specialty that requires specific training. By creating a specific licensure process we are able to ensure that those who practice art therapy have the appropriate training.
Furthermore, art therapy provides unique oppertunities to clients heal. Providing more knowledge about art therapy could be a key to helping our states men and women heal.
