Supprt for the VA Art Therapy License
As a Clinical Art Therapist from VA, who went to NY to get Art Therapy schooling and Licensure, I would love to see VA be a hub of art therapy awareness and support. Providing licensure to upcoming master's level graduates to come to/stay in VA is vital to growing the occupation and industry. I support reciprocal licensure for Art Therapists from other states as well. Seeing trauma as having mental and emotional symptoms versus only physical symptoms will improve VA's standards of practice and care in the state to a great degree!
