Default Re: Art Therapy vs. Recreation Therapy

I struggle with this question daily. As a trained Art Therapist with a Master's degree I work in a Recreation Department surrounded by co-workers and supervisors with bearly a High School education. As a state employee I am placed on a pay range with co-workers with little to no experience and education, as well. I will be the first to admit the value that recreation provides with the clients I work with, but to clump Art Therapy with Recreation (which is commonplace in the state system) only serves to devalue the Art Therapy program and the art therapist as a clinician.
