I support this process, as an art therapist in Virginia working with active duty and veteran service members who experience traumatic brain injuries and post traumatic stress. Art therapy licensing is need to protect those in need of this specialized profession from non-qualified inept practitioners. Art therapy is licensed in Maryland, DC and many other states, Virgina should be competitive to attract jobs and residents.
