May 14, 2024 | By Devika Parmar, AMFT Since entering the field of art therapy, I have often wondered: what makes an art therapist? I completed my Masters in Marital and Family Therapy last year and was taught the clinical foundations of this work, so certainly an art therapist that does make me. However, as a pre-licensed therapist that does not work primarily with the modality of art therapy, I’ve reflected over the last months especially how and in what ways my identity can still exist as central in my work. I recall a memorable meeting with my art therapy supervisor in the final semest ..read more

American Art Therapy Association
by Meredith Ashley
