While art therapy continues to develop as a profession, and has many more miles to travel, many graduates of VATI have been instrumental in taking their training all over Canada and the world. The recognition of art therapy as a healing modality is increasingly acclaimed and acknowledged as a unique form of treatment.
Art therapists work within local and national communities where contributions are being made to society at large. As well, the challenging world we live in makes place for art therapists who wish to work in war torn environments or areas facing natural disasters. Individuals bring their own special interests to this work and are encouraged to pursue their dreams.
