1. Ethics

The Code of Ethics, Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures is designed to provide art therapists and credential applicants with a set of Ethical Standards (Part I, Section 1) to guide them in the practice of art therapy, as well as Standards of Conduct (Part I, Section 2) to which every credentialed art therapist and credential applicant must adhere.

The ATCB may decline to grant, withhold, suspend, or revoke the credentials of any person who fails to adhere to the Standards of Ethics and Conduct (Part I, Section 3). Credentialed art therapists and credential applicants are expected to comply with ATCB Standards of Ethics and Conduct.
