These introductory courses provide an ideal opportunity to learn more about the interventions and media used in therapeutic play, as well as APAC’s experiential based training methods.

Participants will experience non-directive Play Therapy for themselves and be introduced to a variety of techniques and therapeutic media including:

  • Art
  • Music
  • Sand Worlds
  • Creative Visualisation
  • Storytelling

In addition, employment opportunities in working therapeutically with children will be discussed and there will be time at the end of the day to ask the Course Director any questions you may have about Play Therapy and progression to the next stage of training.
