Description

This is an intensive 30-hour training that focuses on teaching the principles and protocols of the Seminal theory of Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT).  CCPT is a play-based mental health theory that allows children to lead their play while being able to explore the therapeutic playroom to get their needs met by a counselor tracking their play.  Children from 2-11 years of age who are experiencing behavioral, trauma, relational, social, regulation, and emotional problems are able to express themselves through their play in the therapeutic playroom.  This training provides an in-depth understanding of CCPT starting with the history, fundamentals, application, practice, and a supervision component to ensure that all the participants are able to complete CCPT sessions with their clients after completion of the course.  

A therapeutic playroom helps children work through emotional, social, developmental, and behavioral difficulties along with helping to address family problems. A therapeutic playroom is a deeply respectful and effective form of counseling and psychotherapy for children from 2-11 years old. It is a humanistic Play Therapy modality that provides wonderful opportunities for early intervention with children. The therapeutic playroom fosters the child’s innate potential and encourages the unique development and emotional growth of the child. In this non-directive Play Therapy approach, the counselor enters the world of the child, following the child’s lead, developing a safe place and a relationship of trust. Children often have difficulty trying to say in words what they feel and how experiences have affected them. Play is the natural language of children and the toys can be their words. Through the toys, art materials, and other things in the playroom, children can express their thoughts and feelings, explore relationships and share their experiences.

This training is a four-day training split up into sections to allow for learning, practice, supervision, and application of knowledge.  In addition to class time, participants will complete 4 play sessions at home with a child and provide two video sessions to be reviewed by the instructor and cohort during Day 3 and Day 4 of the training for additional learning and opportunities for improvement.  An hour cohort zoom session for questions after completing practice CCPT sessions at home is offered to process struggles and achievements together.  All cohort participants will need to read Play Therapy, The Art of the Relationship by Gary Landreth and complete a test.  A 3-5 page reflection paper of the participants’ experience demonstrating their ability to use all the components of the theory will be completed at the end of the class for receiving a certificate of completion.  The Play Therapy Association desires for those seeking to be a Registered Play Therapist to learn, practice, and be supervised.  This training follows this model to ensure that all cohort participants are educated in the CCPT theory.
