ATCB CODE OF ETHICS, CONDUCT, AND DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES
The ATCB Code of Ethics, Conduct, and Disciplinary Procedures outlines appropriate conduct for art therapists. It protects the interest of the profession, as well as individual clients, employers and the public. It addresses ethical principles as well as standards of conduct.
Any art therapist who seeks or holds ATCB credentials (ATR-Provisional, ATR, ATR-BC or ATCS) agrees to adhere to the highest standards, as reflected in the Code of Ethics, Conduct, and Disciplinary Procedures. All ATCB credential holders make a commitment to uphold the Code themselves and expect it of their colleagues. ATCB Code of Ethics, Conduct, and Disciplinary Procedures available for download here.
