Why Join ANZATA
Members receive the benefits of ANZATA's advocacy for the arts therapy profession and the advantages and protection of being represented by a professional body. They also receive ANZATA's regular newsletter, ANZATA News, an annual peer-reviewed journal, ANZJAT, the ANZATA Forum on this website (go to members' login to get to the Forum) and the opportunity to receive a significant discount to attend an ANZATA conference or symposium each year.
ANZATA has three levels of membership
Benefits of belonging – Professional recognition
Other benefits of belonging
Student and Trainee membership
Student members of approved ANZATA training courses (these can be found on the ANZATA website) can enjoy free membership of ANZATA for their final year of study. We hope this will allow them to experience the benefits of ANZATA membership, and that they will be encouraged to become professional members on graduation.
The expansion of ANZATA
We have extended into South East Asia with the incorporation of Singapore. ANZATA has also opened its professional membership to arts therapists from many arts modalities, allowing our membership and our versatility to expand. Practitioners who work in modalities such as dramatherapy and dance/movement therapy are welcome to apply for membership if they have trained to the required level (see www.anzata.org for more info).
There are various pathways to membership. To see the options for professional membership, the categories and requirements, the fee schedule and to apply, please go to the Join page.
