Change in ATR Supervisor Requirements: The ATCB recently changed the post-education supervised experience requirements for the ATR credential. Effective January 1, 2018, The ATCB will no longer accept supervision provided by a registered art therapist (ATR) for graduates from 2018 classes and beyond. This change will apply to all ATR applicants who graduate (or complete their education requirements) on or after January 1, 2018. (ATCB, Spring, 2017)
