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:

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