The goal of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association is to inspire, stimulate, and support the creative and artistic spirit.

IEATA encourages an evolving multimodal approach within psychology, community arts, and education. IEATA is committed to providing a professional guild and network for its members to make connections, exchanges and collaborations. IEATA intends to provide informative resources about the expressive arts and how they may relate to other disciplines, such as psychology, education and business.
