Course content

Become a qualified play therapist and help children come to terms with traumatic events in their lives. Through the use of play, you will give children the confidence and opportunity to express themselves during their time with you.

Whether you are looking for a career change, already work in psychological therapy, social work or in medicine and want to add therapeutic play to your existing skill set, or if you are a graduate just starting out in the field and want to refine your knowledge, this professional course, delivered in partnership with the Academy of Play and Child Psychotherapy (APAC), and accredited by the professional body Play Therapy UK, will enable you to work under supervision with individual children who have slight to moderate problems.
