This course imparts methods of supervision and instruction that develop in others the capacity to think as play therapists. Modified Socratic methods, exercises, and “compassionate communication” are used to teach participants to apply such methods to the supervision and instruction of others. Participants learn how to help supervisees and students develop treatment goals, match therapy interventions to these goals, integrate ongoing assessment of play into treatment planning, and recognize and work with induced and personal countertransference
Note: This course is being offered for 7 contact hours which can be applied toward application or renewal of RPT or RPT-S credentials. The Association of Play Therapy allows this class to satisfy play therapy instruction hours or play-therapy-specific supervisor training hours. (APT CE provider # 98-046)
While the Department of Psychiatry is aware of the research on the efficacy of play therapy*, it cannot specifically endorse each play therapy intervention included in each class in the play therapy certificate program.
