Dear Creative Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to our 37th Annual Buckeye Art Therapy Symposium, at the Embassy Suites Columbus, September 27-29, 2018.  We are honored to have the renowned Noah Hass Cohen as our Pre-Conference Course and  Keynote presenter. 


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 37th Annual BATA Symposium to enrich our profession, each other, and ourselves.
