About Us 2

Do you wish to become a working Play Therapist?

In 2018 Centre for Play Therapy launched our clinical training program in child centred play therapy. The objective of this training is to equip those with a relevant undergraduate degree to obtain further training in the area of child centred play therapy in order to apply this knowledge and skill to clinical practice. Our vision for providing child centred play therapy training in our local communities is to ensure practitioners are equipped to provide quality play therapy services to children across Australia. The current program requires participants to attend three workshops in order to apply for professional membership upon completion.
We ask that all applicants have previously completed our ‘Introduction to Play Therapy’ course.
