Introductory Play Therapy Courses for Individuals and for Schools and Other Organisations.

APAC runs 1, 2 and 3 day Introductory Play Therapy Courses which are open to any mature adult. These courses are also run in-house for schools, agencies, social services and other organisations concerned with children’s welfare. These courses are designed for anyone interested in using Play Therapy or developing their skills in working with children. Also for those wishing to make a career decision.

The 1-day course is one of our most popular Introductory Play Therapy Courses and an ideal introduction for individuals to the interventions and media used in therapeutic play together with our experiential based training methods. We also cover career opportunities and development. It enables you to decide whether you will take to Play Therapy work and would benefit from our experiential training methods. Time is set aside for personal interviews, if required by you, to discuss any personal issues related to Play Therapy training.

The 2 and 3-day courses are ideal as INSET days for primary schools, or CPD training for counselling or social services agencies. Participants will gain skills that they may incorporate in their existing work with children and young persons aged 3 – 14. They will assist organisations to develop an integrated strategy and frame objectives for delivering therapeutic services for children, young persons and families.

APAC also designs and delivers 3 day  therapeutic play courses to help those working with children who have special problems such as physical disabilities or provide specialist services such as respite care.
