It collaborates with relevant scientific associations and associations such as the American Association of Art Psychotherapists (AATA), the International Association of Expressive Arts Therapists (IEATA) etc.
It is under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education, Research and Religions.
The basic aim of the partnership is the elevation of Art as a very important component for a plead of disciplines and actions, on a national and international level.
Based on a purely human-centered philosophy and always according to the principles and the tools of art psychotherapies, as they emerge from recent international studies and practices, we sought to continuously sensitize and inform people regarding the scientific dialectic value of Art as an important interstitial means to achieve, defend and promote the Mental Health and well-being of individuals and groups.
Apart from that, the widest possible recognition of the dialectic value of Art, from professionals of several disciplines as an ideological framework that contribute to the creation of appropriate interventions (psychotherapeutic, psycho educational, training, etc.) to ensure a suitable environment both for individual mental and physical health as well as for the well-being of society as a whole.
Our long-term aim is the academic and professional recognition and ensuring of the rights of Art Therapists both in Greece and abroad.
With every available means, we organize, realize, evaluate and support all activities and programmes that are fully in accordance with UN SDGs, and more specifically the sectors regarding Health, Education and Culture, and are commensurate to the goals, aims and subject matter of the partnership.
