Registered Art Therapist (ATR)

Once you've earned your ATR designation, keeping it current allows you to maintain this professional credential, thus enhancing your value to clients or employers. It also puts you on track to become a Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC).

To maintain your ATR credential:
  • Adhere to the ATCB Code of Professional Practice.
  • Pay the annual $100 maintenance fee (please see fee chart).
  • Complete the renewal process each year.

Your annual renewal notice will be sent to you in May of each year and is due by June 30. A late fee will be charged if the fee is not received by June 30. If it is not paid by October 1, and/or if the Disciplinary & Litigation History section of the renewal process is not completed & submitted, your credential will lapse. You may not use the ATR designation if your credential lapses. If your credential has lapsed for more than three years, you will no longer hold the ATR, and must seek reinstatement.

See the ATR Application Handbook for details.
