Who Should Attend Theraplay Level One Training

In the United States and many other parts of the world, Theraplay certification is limited to those with a masters or doctoral degree and a clinical license; the credential earned is Certified Theraplay Therapist.  In other countries that do not have universal clinical licensure, such as the UK, the credential earned is Certified Theraplay Practitioner, and professional accreditation is required. In all countries, those who are not mental health clinicians may attend training and become certified as a Foundational Theraplay Practitioner.
