                              NJ Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists Licensing Act is signed into law!

After five and a half years of work, on December 19, 2019 Governor Murphy took legislative action and signed Bill A1220 w/GR, “Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists Licensing Act”, into law.

Although the bill has been signed by the governor, a new State Regulatory Board needs to be created, and regulations need to be written. We do not know how long it will be until people will be able to apply to be a licensed drama therapist or licensed dance/movement therapist in NJ, but we will keep you updated as the process progresses!

Congratulations to the NJ Drama Therapy & Dance/Movement Therapy Licensure Task Force
