Standards of Practice
As an affiliate chapter of the American Art Therapy Association, we operate under their general guidance and within the best interest of our members and our community.
We also uphold the values and competencies of the governing bodies of our various credentials, more notably the Art Therapy Credentials Board and the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists.
The Maryland Art Therapy Association serves its membership regarding issues of ethical practice through routine collaborations, networking, and workshops. The MATA also strives to educate the general public on the nature and benefits of art therapy through presentations and outreach.
