The Texas State University Institute for Play Therapy is an approved center for play therapy by the Association for Play Therapy. Our goal in providing play therapy education is to enrich and challenge your knowledge, skills and practice. The format will be small group seminars to facilitate discussion n and provide opportunities for experiential work. We will offer three seminars in 2013 that includes required reading in preparation for the full day of education and experience. This allows the participant to earn non-contact continuing education hours, in connection with the contact hours, therefore expanding the total credit hours. The readings also provide for a richer, more in-depth seminar experience.
