Art therapy licensing
 

Many specialties in medicine and its allied fields such as dentistry,  psychology , etc, have both board certification as well as state licensing .... Art therapy has been around for 40 years with a Board and journals ... A state license does yet exist ... This needs to be corrected .... It will also bring in state revenues when a fee is charged for a yearly or bi-yearly license .....

thank you for your consideration,
