Student and professional art therapists with an interest in the international community of art therapists and contacts..... International Networking Group of Art Therapists (ING/AT) The ING/AT, established in 1989, is a membership organization representing student and professional art therapists in 77 countries whose mission is to increase international networking and information exchange with particular interest in reducing the isolation of colleagues attempting to advance the profession of art therapy single-handedly. The ING serves as a communications hub and publishes a semi-annual newsletter for members. No dues notices are sent; dues expiration dates appear behind the names on newsletter mailing labels.
Countries with designated English-speaking "correspondents," are able to translate
incoming and outgoing communications and submit reports on the state of the profession, problems encountered and solutions found; pose questions in search of solutions on organizing a national professional association, promoting the profession, developing job markets, planning formal or informal education and training programs, sponsoring a conference or seminar; seek contact with experienced art therapists or neighboring nations with whom they can share experiences or collaborate to expand their knowledge base. English is the official language of ING/AT. The newsletter is the primary medium of exchange and features reports on the status of art therapy and professional development in various countries, book reports, an International Calendar of Events & Conferences, minutes of ING meetings held anywhere in the world, names and addresses of ING Correspondents and National Art Therapy Associations, formal education & training programs and informal educational opportunities. ING/AT also responds to individual members' requests for information; others are expected to become members. Since ING resources cannot cover the expense of the extensive number of requests received, non-members are referred to the following resources for the most frequently requested information:
1. Graduate art therapy educational opportunities in the world, especially USA & European countries.
A. In Europe: Contact ECArTE (European Consortium for Arts Therapies Education)
whose members are Universities and Institutions of Higher Education providing
nationally validated and professionally recognized courses in the arts therapies.
ECArTE has defined minimum criteria for initial training as an art therapist.
Contact: Dr. Line Kossolapow, firstname.lastname@example.org
B. In U.S.A.: Contact: American Art Therapy Association, Inc., email@example.com
1) Educational Program List of AATA-approved graduate programs and non-
approved graduate and undergraduate programs in colleges and universities.
USA non-member cost is $2.00.

to members only!
3. Job qualifications and opportunities in a specific country: Limited information and

4. List of facilities willing to host cross-cultural research: ING is developing a database
of international research on art therapy and host facilities. Our data increases regularly.
Contributions about art therapy research completed or in process is welcome from all
5. List of US facilities for supervised internships: No such listing is possible! Facilities are
too numwerous and throughout 50 states. Brief internships (under 9 months or one full
academic year) are discouraged and rare.
6. Dates and places of upcoming art therapy conferences and seminars: A regular feature
of the ING Newsletter is the International Calendar of Events.
7. Requests for financial subsidies, grants, or scholarships for study, programs or projects:
ING does not grant financial aid to any individuals or programs. Our low $15.00 annual
dues are still not affordable to art therapists in underdeveloped countries whom ING most
wants to reach. In such cases, ING dues are waived and costs of membership services
are borne by dues-paying members in developed countries.
We invite your membership in the INTERNATIONAL NETWORKING GROUP OF ART THERAPISTS!
