The addition of individualized licensure for Art Therapy would be highly beneficial to Virginia as it will increase effective and ethical use of the practices of art therapy in our state and encourage art therapists from other locations to consider relocating to Virginia. It will also allow many of our pediatric, medical, and psychiatric hospitals to provide expressive mental health services that currently have limited or minimal access.
