Hi! This week is #playtherapyweek in the US. The Association for Play Therapy has launched a number of campaigns and initiatives to raise awareness about #playtherapy. Our Canadian association @cacpt also does a ton of work to regulate and train professionals and inform the public about child and play therapy.
#playtherapy is a specialized form of child therapy that recognizes the unique developmental needs of children and applies all forms of play including music, art and movement to counselling children. A registered or certified play therapist has undergone advanced training and supervision and ongoing professional development. Contact me to get more info!
I’ve attached a link to the Alberta Play Therapy Association. Check out this lovely explanation of what play therapy is. http://www.albertaplaytherapy.ca/go.php?page=4
