The Institute for Play Therapy

IPT logo


The mission of the Institute for Play Therapy is to offer quality play therapy training to professionals in the community and to encourage play therapy networking, research, and resources.

Our goal in providing play therapy education is to enrich and challenge each participant’s knowledge, skills and practice. The format will be small group seminars to facilitate discussion and provide opportunities for experiential work. We offer seminars that include required reading in preparation for the full day of education and experience. This allows the participant to earn non-contact continuing education hours, in connection with the contact hours, therefore expanding the total credit hours. The readings also provide for a richer, more in-depth seminar experience.
