    Hi Erika, as we are the careers service for healthcare staff in England we
    are cannot tell you which courses to take at your community college but it
    is worth asking them and what opportunities are available locally. And
    people with pyschiatric disorders often help people with similiar problems.
    To work as an art therapist in England you will also need to undertake a
    university degree but worth speaking to someone at your college who can
    provide more specific advice. Good luck!

    I have just returned from Northern Uganda where I set up an art therapy
    service in an orphanage for former child soldiers and war orphans. Please
    watch: ‘Kitgum’s Orphans, Invisible Wounds’. I’m hoping it’ll help to
    promote the awareness and the sponsorship of war orphans at the orphanage
    and with a bit of luck, raise financial funds for further resources.

    Does anybody knows how much do art therapist make a year?

  11. sarah26 Says:

    art therapy can be anything from collages to molding with clay to making
    crafts with cloth or yarn. It’s basically crafts, drawing, painting,
    anything that relaxed the patient enough to express themselves through the
    art and eventually verbally. If you search it on youtube you’ll get some
    cool projects that art therapists use.

    applying to for their requirements. Good luck!
