The Theraplay Supervision Experience

It is said that learning starts with supervision.  Participants in our supervision practicum receive top-quality professional feedback to apply their book learning and classroom training to real life clients.  Theraplay supervision will develop your skills and build your confidence to deal with your most difficult cases.  It will help you feel more comfortable working with parents and with the types of clients that may not have responded to the treatment approaches you have previously used.

Your new Theraplay skills and web directory listing can help build your reputation and your practice as well as provide the best treatment services to your clients. Please see our service mark guidelines.
