Efforts in Increasing Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Field of Art Therapy
Awais, Yasmine J.; Yali, Ann Marie
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v32 n3 p112-119 2015
There is a clear need for greater diversity in the field of art therapy, with a particular need to increase the representation of racial and ethnic minorities in educational programs. In a sample of 16 art therapy program directors, strategies and barriers to recruitment were identified through an anonymous online survey. The results of the survey indicate that a majority of programs would like to increase racial and ethnic diversity, although less than half shared their current strategies for recruitment. Suggestions to develop recruitment and retention strategies of students of color are discussed, as well as future directions for serving racial and ethnic minority clients.
