Dear Creative Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to our 40th Annual Buckeye Art Therapy SymposiumSeptember 9-11, 2021.  We are honored to have Dr. Mercedes ter Maat as our Pre-Conference Course and Keynote presenter and are thrilled to offer this experience virtually for the first time!


The BATA Symposium provides connections with our creative colleagues who share our interests, attitudes, and aspirations. It is a time of renewal, connections, and networking. We explore the latest advances in the identification of pivotal skills that our variety of presenters offer to share. It is our chance to deepen our grasp of the complex craft and profession of art therapy and learn how we can continue to enhance our sense of expertise and fulfillment.

Thank you for joining us at the 40th Annual BATA Symposium to enrich our profession, each other, and ourselves.
