We have received enquiry from the HKU’s student representative on registration as a REAT. They are suggestinga meeting with representatives from IEATA to have a more in-depth discussion and sharing of information.
We continue receiving emails showing interest in joining our committee as committee members. We are working on setting up a google drive platform and a google group to use as a resource for our members. Our google platform will have information for students and new professionals about REAT/REACE certification, EXA programs, a platform for members to chat, Q & A documents etc.
Going forward, we will continue to identify more student and new professional representatives, make connections with expressive arts therapy institutes through the representatives, and organize events including a relaunch of the mentorship program, postcard and pen pal/art pal exchange, and easier access to REAT supervisors.
