The National Coalition of Creative Arts Therapies Associations, Inc., founded in 1979, is an alliance of membership associations dedicated to the advancement of the creative arts therapies professions. NCCATA represents over 15,000 individual members of five creative arts therapies associations nationwide. 
Creative Arts Therapists are human service professionals who use distinct arts-based methods and creative processes for the purpose of ameliorating disability and illness and optimizing health and wellness. Treatment outcomes include, for example, improving communication and expression, and increasing physical, emotional, cognitive and/or social functioning. NCCATA is recognized by the US federal government as a tax-exempt 501c3 charity and can receive charitable donations.
