We believe that true learning starts with expert supervision. As a participant in our practicum you will receive professional, relevant, and timely feedback to apply to your book learning and classroom training. Theraplay supervision will develop your skills and build your confidence to help your most challenging cases. It will help you feel more comfortable working with parents and clients who may have not responded to previous treatment approaches. Your new Theraplay skills can help build your reputation and your practice while providing the best treatment services to your clients. We recommend completing Foundational Certification for minimum best practice. Members of The Theraplay Association also receive a free website directory listing once Foundational Theraplay Practitioner certification is completed.
Once enrolled in the practicum, students are matched with and guided by a Certified Theraplay Supervisor. Certified Supervisors have a minimum of two years of experience as a Certified Theraplay Practitioner and have completed a rigorous practicum to become a supervisor. Many supervisors are trained in a variety of modalities and are leaders in their field. Supervision at The Theraplay Institute is designed to provide you with the highest level of professional support as you acquire skills and knowledge about the Theraplay modality.
