Professional Registration

for REAT®  and REACE ® 

One of IEATA®'s key missions is to promote professional excellence and standards of practice for practitioners and consumers. To that end, we established the titles of Registered Expressive Arts Therapist (REAT) and Registered Expressive Arts Consultant/Educator (REACE®), and developed screening and registration processes to certify qualified members. All REATs and REACE®s agree to abide by a code of ethics, an expression of values and goals that help us define our behavior as a professional community.


Although we do not offer a formal track for practicing expressive artists, we value their significant contributions to the field, and encourage and support their work through our Artist Committee.
