Art therapists may have two levels of credentials.
The first level is Registered Art Therapist (ATR), which means the therapist has a master's degree, has met rigorous educational standards and has had supervised experience working as an art therapist. ATRs may then take a comprehensive national exam to become Board Certified (ATR-BC). ATR-BCs who have met rigorous standards for supervisory qualifications may obtain the Art Therapy Certified Supervisor (ATCS) credential as an additional optional credential.
