Legal Considerations in Arts Therapy Practice with Annette Coulter

  • 28 Oct 2023
  • ZOOM


  • (+GST for Australian members)

Registration is closed

In the excitement of gaining arts therapy work, the legal significance of negotiating terms and conditions, and signing a job contract can be overlooked. It is also necessary to know how, when and why to make a mandatory report; how to document your notes in case they are subpoenaed; and how to write reports especially court reports where you may be required to give evidence or be cross-examined. Clinical supervision is crucial for best practice and if you are a supervisor, it is important to also know the extent of your legal responsibility to your supervisees. This workshop aims to provide tips and advice to better prepare you for unexpected, respectful negotiations of workplace conditions as well as outlining legal aspects of this work around note-taking, report writing, the legalities around the use of images or video recordings, the handling of subpoenas and clinical supervision.

Annette Coulter is a registered art psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, published author, and practicing artist. She is an accredited PACFA supervisor and an approved ANZACATA supervisor and is also an Interactive Drawing Therapy (IDT) trainer and supervisor. She has taught and supervised on MA art therapy programmes in Australia and overseas and specialised in work with children, adolescents, families and couples. Through private practice she provides clinical supervision, education, consultation and customised training. She is co-author of The Introductory Guide to Art Therapy, (2014).
