An international community of Play and Family Therapists, studying together and developing friendships around the globe.
Since 1995, the Family & Play Therapy Center has offered Postgraduate Trainings to hundreds of therapists from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. In addition to our beautiful onsite classroom, we now have a state-of-the-art Interactive Live Online Classroom (iLOC) that reaches out to therapists across the country and around the world! The Association for Play Therapy gives contact training hours for online participation in our classes, as well as for attending here at the Center. Many of our courses follow the academic year, and throughout the year, we also offer one- and two-day seminars with visiting presenters who are outstanding practitioners, theorists, and authors. Each summer, we offer a four-day course that attracts therapists from around the country to our on-site classroom. We offer partial scholarships for international trainees. Many of the professionals who train here earn the credentials of registered play therapist (RPT) and registered play therapist supervisor (RPT-S) with the Association for Play Therapy.
Those at a distance may join us through our Interactive Live Online Classroom (iLOC) for most of our courses and seminars. This allows therapists from around the country and the world to easily attend many of our trainings, and also gives them membership in our online community, where they are able to enhance their connection to the professional network, and to share views on matters of clinical and practical interest. Last year, students joined us from Hawaii, Alaska, Europe, and Japan, as well from twenty other states of the US. The professional trainings offered here at the Center are approved by the State of Pennsylvania for Continuing Education credits (this approval is recognized by many other states), and by the Association for Play Therapy for continuing education credit specific to Play Therapy.
