The cornerstone of our institution is our accredited post-graduate diploma program; the Art Psychotherapy Diploma has been built on current and inclusive education, theories, and clinical placement practice, leading graduates to the professional designation of Professional Art Therapist with the Canadian Art Therapy Association, and the designation of Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. Our graduates go on to have fulfilling careers in hospitals, clinics, schools, community centres, private practice, and more.
With a commitment to client care and capacity building, CiiAT also offers a range of professional development courses and provides uniquely creative organizational development events to teams within and outside the field of mental health.
As a registered not-for-profit society, CiiAT’s community programs are funded by grants and generous community partners. The Virtual Art Therapy Clinic currently relies on private donations to provide individual and group therapy sessions to clients of all ages and stages of life.
