ART THERAPY OUTREACH SERVICES
Individual and Group Supervision
Individual and group supervision for art therapists working towards the Art Therapy Credential Board's ATR credential or interested in obtaining ATR Provisional status/credential. Sessions held on Cleveland's Westside. Web-based individual supervision is also available for those outside of the NE Ohio area and abroad. E-mail for more information. Change in ATR Supervisor Requirements: The ATCB recently changed the post-education supervised experience requirements for the ATR credential. Effective January 1, 2018, a minimum of half the required post-education art therapy experience hours (50) must be supervised by an ATR-BC or an art therapy certified supervisor (ATCS). The ATCB will no longer accept supervision provided by a registered art therapist (ATR). This change will apply to all ATR applicants who graduate (or complete their education requirements) on or after January 1, 2018. (ATCB, Spring, 2017)
