We aim to establish and maintain a professional body of members and enhance professional conduct and development through:
To recommend that all practicing members adhere to the Code of Ethics as outlined in the International Federation of Anthroposophic Therapies (IFAT) as well as the relevant registration body to which they belong where applicable.
Guidelines on practice, competencies and training are contained in the former CAHSC 2009 Code of Practice (Anthroposophic Health Professions) and 2011 Standards of Competence (Anthroposophic Therapeutic Arts), or in equivalent updated versions thereof.
To establish and maintain cooperation with:
Applicants are required to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or any appropriate registration body that may be approved by the Carrying Group. They have completed an anthroposophic therapeutic arts training, with diploma, recognised by the Medical Section (see above), or must have gained a certificate of competence directly through the Medical Section.
The rate is currently £72 per year.
Membership is open to students enrolled in anthroposophic therapeutic arts trainings recognised by the Medical Section.
Membership shall be free for students until they graduate, at which point they inform the Association of their status change and are invited to apply for a new level of membership. Student members are encouraged, where possible, to support the Association in other ways, such as help with preparing AATA conferences and other Association activities.
International and Retired Membership is open to anthroposophic therapeutic arts practitioners who live abroad and want to remain in touch, have no professional association in their own country, and to those who are retired and no longer practise. They pay a reduced fee of 50%.
Applications can be received from any individual, including professionals who may to date not qualify for full membership, who share the aims and objectives of the Association. Associate membership fee is the same as that of full membership.
