Certificate of Expressive Arts Therapy
Certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy
The Institute for Creative Mindfulness provides the necessary educational and supervision requirements to apply for the Registered Expressive Arts Therapist credential granted by the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA). We offer these services to individuals who hold a clinical license in a behavioral health profession (e.g., counseling, social work, psychology, marriage & family therapy, addiction/chemical dependency counseling, psychiatry). We also work with individuals who have a behavioral health Master’s degree or are close to completing, and are on track for licensure in their state or country. A Certificate of Expressive Arts Therapy through ICM is achieved through a combination of education requirements and supervision hours.
Completion of a Certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy is the first step toward a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist (REAT) credential with IEATA, which requires an additional 50 hours of supervision to correspond with 1,000 hours of work experience post-training. Dr. Jamie Marich makes arrangements for training toward REAT credentials on a case-by-case basis. More information on IEATA's professional registration requirements for REAT following completion of a Certificate in Expressive Arts therapy can be found at www.ieata.org/reat-standard-requirements.
If you have a Masters of Fine Arts degree, you may be eligible to apply for an alternate credential with IEATA, the Registered Expressive Arts Consultant and Educator (REACE) distinction. Dr. Jamie Marich also makes arrangements for REACE mentoring on a case-by-case basis. More information about REACE credentials can be found at https://www.ieata.org/what-is-reace
