Want To Become An Art Therapist

One day I want to become an art therapist but I don't know how or where I could become one. Does anyone know what it takes to become one? What classes or majors you would have to have?

I'm in the us. Art therapy is not really heard of around where I live. But in the bigger cities I think its big. I'm just not sure of all the classes and schools that provide it.

It's quite an expensive thing to train to do, but it is an amazing form of therapy once you do it. Im not sure where in the world you are, but in the UK you have up to 8yrs training to do it properly. There are shorter courses too, but they dont offer the same type of qualifications.
