Art therapists in individual, couples, family, and group therapy formats serve populations of all ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds. Founded in 1969 and consisting of 5,000 members in approximately 41 chapters, AATA has established standards for art therapy education, ethics, and practice. AATA committees actively work on governmental affairs, clinical issues, and professional development. In addition, AATA offers graduate degree programs, engages in patient advocacy and education, promotes research, and conducts annual national conferences and regional symposia.
