The Therapeutic Arts Practitioner Program (TAPPs) is a professional development course composed of four modules:
1. Introduction to Therapeutic Arts
2. The Media Continuum
3. Group and Community Arts
4. Mindfulness and Contemplation in the Arts
Each module is 4 weeks long, and the total program length is 16 weeks. Modules must be completed in sequential order. Students are awarded the Therapeutic Arts Practitioner Certificate upon graduation.
The Therapeutic Arts Master Practitioner Program (TAMPs) includes three additional advanced modules:
5. Realigning Relationships
6. On the Spectrum
7. Shifting the PTSD Paradigm
Modules may be taken in any order, but all three modules (in addition to the TAPPs program) must be completed in order to receive the Therapeutic Arts Master Practitioner Certificate. Like TAPPs, each module is 4 weeks long. The total program length is 12 weeks.
Please note that graduation from either therapeutic arts program does not certify you in becoming a Professional Art Therapist. If you are interested in a career as an Art Therapist, please see our Art Psychotherapy Diploma.
