Many of the participants in the Institute's online, distance learning and live courses are interested in obtaining a credential in Expressive Arts Therapy. This credential is called a REAT, which stands for Registered Expressive Arts Therapist. The organization that provides this credential and sets the standards for obtaining the REAT is the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association [IEATA]; to learn more about IEATA and become a member (highly recommended), you can visit their website at https://www.ieata.org/professional-registration. You can also download a copy of the REAT Code of Ethics at the bottom of this page.
The Trauma-Informed Practices and Expressive Arts Therapy Institute provides courses that can be applied toward obtaining the REAT, based on the current REAT application standards. Our core faculty all hold a REAT and/or qualified credentials in the expressive arts therapies and clinical licenses. We are also currently working on creating a REAT-supervised internship course for the required internship hours; these hours will be offered through distance supervision via Skype or similar communication platforms.
Most participants in our courses fall into one of the two following eligibility categories [you can also find this information on the IEATA website at https://www.ieata.org/reat-standard-requirements].
(See https://www.ieata.org/reat-standard-requirements. Our core faculty and supervisors hold REATs and/or qualified credentials for purposes of instruction and supervision).
3) Demonstration of arts practice and involvement.
(See definition of “Professional Expressive Arts Therapy Institutes” https://www.ieata.org/reat-standard-requirements. Our main faculty and supervisors hold REATs and/or qualified credentials for purposes of instruction and supervision).
