Linking Personal Qualifications to Education Standards
Feen-Calligan, Holly
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v24 n2 p64-70 2007
This paper examines how the personal qualifications required to practice art therapy can be integrated into the American Art Therapy Association Education Standards. A review of current and historical documents demonstrates the importance of personal qualifications of art therapists. The author proposes a link between education standards and personal qualifications by identifying the latter as specific competencies. The article concludes with recommendations for how to proceed with linking personal qualifications to education standards. This article is intended to provoke thought and discussion about what personal qualifications are necessary to practice art therapy, and how these qualifications can be developed during graduate preparation. (Contains 2 tables.)
