The American Art Therapy Association and the Community of Japanese Arts Therapists, with over 70 members who live in Japan and the US, are in discussions about how best to coordinate art therapy support efforts for the people of Japan.

News will be posted on this site as opportunities for assistance are identified and the timing is right.
