What does it mean to be a professionally registered Creative Arts Therapist?
The Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA) is the peak professional body that represents creative arts therapists in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia/Pacific region.
To be an ANZACATA professionally registered Creative Arts Therapist signifies that I have completed an approved master’s degree and have a minimum of 750 clinical hours of training.
An ANZACATA registration is recognised as the highest professional standard for arts therapists in Australia, New Zealand and Asia across health professions. Being a registered member of ANZACATA means I works under a code of ethics that addresses issues of safe practice for my clients and requires me to comply with continuing professional development and supervision guidelines in line with other health professions to ensure my training and practice continue to stay relevant to contemporary knowledge and research.
