As part of our commitment to art therapy's competent and ethical practice through the credentialing of art therapy professionals, the Art Therapy Credentials Board will soon upgrade our processing systems. Detailed information about the new system will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

In preparation for implementing these upgrades, we will no longer accept application materials via mail as of February 19, 2021. Please send all application materials to the email system the ATCB implemented in 2020. All application materials mailed to the National Office will be returned to the sender. Detailed information about application submission via email can be found here: atcb.org/info.

If you have extenuating circumstances and are unable to use email, please contact Executive Director LeeAnn Mandrillo.

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:

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 and/or if the Disciplinary & Litigation History section of the renewal process is not completed & submitted, your credential will become inactive. You may not use the ATR designation if you are inactive and must seek reinstatement.
