I support Art Therapy Licensure
Art Therapy licensure will protect the public and increase access to non-verbal psychotherapy treatments, especially for trauma informed care. Art Therapy facilitates the creative process through healing and accessing the non-verbal brain, crucial in the treatment of our national epidemic of child abuse- neglect, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse, and treatment of trauma for our military service members and veterans. The brain shuts down verbal processing when traumas occur and art therapy assists to access the whole brain to create healing.
