Why Join ANZACATA?

ANZACATA is the peak professional body for the creative arts therapies in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia/Pacific region. The profession in our region and its diversity has grown exponentially in recent years, due in part to the increase in evidence and practice-based research in the field and the greater profile of the benefits of the arts in health. ANZACATA is committed to advocacy for the profession and its practitioners. Members receive the benefits of the Association's advocacy and the advantages and protection of being represented by a professional body.

ANZACATA provides professional support and protection through a constitution, a code of ethics, a complaints procedure, continuing professional development and supervision guidelines and access to a master professional indemnity insurance scheme. The Code of Ethics and the ANZACATA Board also provide guidelines and support for the practising creative arts therapist if any complaints are lodged. Professional members are required to comply with Continuing Professional Development and supervision guidelines in line with other health professions.
