Do check out this important campaign on the HCPC website. As art therapists we are all registered practitioners with the Health & Care Professions Council. Fascinating case studies available.
An Arts Therapist is a psychological therapist who has arts-based experience plus training in psychological interventions using drama, music or art as their primary mode of communication.
Why Hire an Arts Therapist? (WHAT?) campaign
The WHAT? campaign, launched in spring 2015, highlights the benefits of using a registered Arts Therapist to employers.
Targeting organisations such as the NHS, private health organisations, social services, the prison service, charities and Local Education Authorities, it aims to raise the profile of Arts Therapists by promoting the benefits of employing a HCPC registered professional and their work in transforming the lives of service users.
