Want to better understand how to use art in therapy? “Fundamentals of Art in Therapy” is a 6-part online course that will give you a strong foundation in understanding the use of art in therapy to best help your clients. Through videos, readings, and hands-on art activities, you will learn essential information about choosing media and directives to support the needs of your clients. This course is intended for counselors and therapists that want to be able to competently and ethically incorporate art and creativity into their work. (12 CEs available through Commonwealth Seminars) Please note: This is not a certification in art therapy; it is intended to supplement your clinical work and should be used within your own scope of practice. Becoming an Art Therapist requires a master’s degree in art therapy.
