We encourage our course takers and participants in our trainings to become familiar with the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association [IEATA] and their credential known as the "REAT"-- Registered Expressive Arts Therapist. We are pleased to provide coursework that can be applied toward this designation based on our understanding of current REAT standards. If you have questions about obtaining this credential, we encourage you to contact the IEATA directly [https://www.ieata.org/] in order to clarify how you can meet their current standards for coursework, degree titles, and supervision.
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].
Please visit International Expressive Arts Therapy Association [IEATA] for more information on the REAT credential. There are several categories and pathways for obtaining the REAT.
We encourage you to join the IEATA community and also to read the REAT Code of Ethics [see the downloadable document below]; this is required reading within many of our courses because it is the only ethics document specifically addressing the application of expressive arts within the context of psychotherapy, education and community work.
