Dyadic art therapy is a complex intervention and requires a high degree of therapist competence.

There are many challenges involved in the work as well as some things which therapist might find helpful. Find out more information about the challenges and the helpers in dyadic work later in the manual.

All dyadic art therapists will have formal art therapy training, and some may have completed other therapeutic training. Therapists can read around the subject and draw on expertise from supervisors and colleagues if it is available.

Therapists should meet the HCPC Standards of Proficiency. They should also be able to demonstrate specific competences.
