You release NorCATA, its organizers, employees, vendors, and each and all persons involved from any liability and waive all rights you may have to any claims for payment or royalties connected with the taking, and/or publication of photographs taken by NorCATA or the person or entity designated to do so by NorCATA.

All workshops and conferences sponsored by NorCATA are accepted for continuing education by the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB). NorCATA has been approved by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) as an Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP 6832).

It is each participant's responsibility to determine whether her or his licensing or credentialing body will accept the continuing education units earned at NorCATA's workshops and conferences.  NorCATA continuing education is defined as the number of actual clock hours spent in direct participation in a structured educational format as a learner. ​
