Enroll in the Online Self-Study and complete the training on your own schedule.
6 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians completing the Online Self-Study.
6 Play therapy credit hours are available to mental health professionals & graduate students in a mental health program

Through a combination of one developmental supervision model and one social roles supervision model, this training webinar will equip participants with a solid framework for how to provide play therapy supervision for interns, pre-licensed therapists, and fully licensed therapists who are providing play therapy services at all levels of professional development. In this workshop, participants will learn how to assess a clinician's level of development and match where the clinician is with the supervisory role and skills that are best fit for the supervise.

Participants will learn how supervisors can provide play-based supervision interventions for the purpose of engaging supervisees experientially while helping supervisees hone their play therapy skills. This course will provide case-studies for participants to apply what they learn in the course about the supervision models to fictional but realistic supervision scenarios.

This course meets the Association for Play Therapy’s credentialing process requirements for those applying for or renewing their Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor (RPT-S) credential.
