TATI is now offering art therapy services online through secured video sessions. The art therapy services at the clinic are provided by student art therapists, who are supervised by Registered Canadian Art Therapists. Student art therapists can support people to deal with mild to moderate stressors and emotional challenges, and build skills in sustaining a sense of well-being.
Our students are trained to integrate their art backgrounds as they learn about the process of Art Therapy and acquire skills for psychotherapeutic work with clients, including children, adolescents, adults and families. The TATI curriculum is designed to ensure students gain the knowledge and experience that will enable them to function as competent, ethical, and compassionate Art Therapy professionals. It is also designed to foster critical thinking, so students are actively involved in creating the learning environment, questioning dominant discourses in the field, and taking part in the production of new ideas. Graduates of the program become leaders in the field of art therapy in the areas of professional practice, research, and theory.
TATI meets the educational standards of the Canadian Art Therapy Association (CATA). Students and professionals may elect to qualify for Canadian Art Therapy Registration (RCAT), provided that they meet all additional CATA requirements for registration. Information regarding these requirements is available through the Canadian Art Therapy Association website.
The next TATI Information session will take place on TBA at our location, 8 Prince Arthur Ave., Second Floor, Toronto. The session will last for 1 hour and 15 minutes and includes the inspiring video Art Therapy has Many Faces followed by a Q&A session about the TATI program.
Due to limited space, we can only accept people that have RSVP’d and received confirmation from TATI prior to the info session.
