Accredited CPD Courses

The following courses and workshops have been, or are in the process of being, accredited by Play Therapy UK (PTUK) for CPD points for qualified Registrants and Members. They are designed to enable experienced practitioners to enhance their skills in specialist areas, not to enable participants to become a Certified Practitioner in Therapeutic Play Skills or a Certified Play Therapist.  

The providers have met PTUK and PTI rigorous CPD standards for the courses listed. Please apply directly to the contact shown for more information and bookings.   If you wish to attend a course or training which is not shown below and have it count towards your 30 hours CPD, you must have prior approval from Monika Jephcott, or it cannot count towards your annual CPD. Please send details, including the web link and justification why this particular course will enhance your play therapy skills, to her at mokijep@majemail.com at least three weeks before the event. If it is approved, a reference code will be forwarded to you which you will need to show on your membership renewal form, together with a brief summary of how your work as a Play Therapist will have benefited from the course or training.  

For all CPD events, make sure that you collect your attendance certificate and/or PTUK authorised Certificate of CPD Training from the provider, when you have completed the course or day.    

Accredited Events  

Event Title/Outline

Life Story Work – telling and explaining using therapeutic play techniques.

Many of our children have difficult, complex and very long histories before they are placed in foster care or with adoptive parents. Life history work is essential to enable them to understand their background and to help them put traumatic events into context.

Local authorities are commissioning therapist/counsellors to work with these children, so now is the time to expand your practice and secure additional work.
