Who participates in GRAT?
GRAT is a support group for Arts Therapists Registered with ANZATA / ACATA or Arts Therapists who are in the process of registering (eligibility criteria please see ANZATA website).
What does GRAT provide?
GRAT provides a way for Arts Therapists to exchange professional knowledge and share expertise. At every GRAT meeting a member or guest speaker presents a topic/discussion on Arts Therapy. GRAT focuses on the theoretical side of Arts Therapy and further professional development for Arts Therapists. GRAT strives to create more public awareness around Arts Therapy.
When and where do we meet?
We meet four times a year. Meetings are usually held on a Sunday afternoon in Central Victoria (eg. Metcalfe, Daylesford, Castlemaine). GRAT participation assists in meeting CPD (Continuing Professional Development) requirements necessary to continue registration with ANZATA, but also provides a solid support network for Arts Therapists.
