Signature

As the term ‘artist’ is used for the purposes of describing activities of, and interventions by, Ontario Expressive Arts Therapy Association AEAP category members including but not limited to visual, movement, dramatic, poetry, creative writing, media arts, I declare that I have read, and understood, the OEATA Code of Ethics & Standards of Practice, that I have no psychotherapeutic relationship with clients, nor do I have contracts for psychotherapy with any clients. I have read the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario definition of the psychotherapy relationship and agree that I do not engage in the regulated act of psychotherapy with clients.

CRPO definition of psychotherapy:

“...to treat, by means of psychotherapy technique delivered through a therapeutic relationship, an individual’s serious disorder of thought, cognition, mood, emotional regulation, perception or memory that may seriously impair the individual’s judgement, insight, behaviour, communication or social functioning.”
