Contract Trainings

Put your training budget dollars to work by bringing evidence-based Theraplay training to you ON-SITE. Get your entire team trained for the price of sending a few to a distant, out of town location.

Theraplay Local is an all-inclusive package for our four-day Level One Theraplay & MIM program with rates for 14-36 participants. All-inclusive means no surprises for you, makes it easy to apply for grant funding, and simple to administer. We also offer contracts for our Theraplay OverviewLevel Two Theraplay & MIMSunshine Circles, and Group Theraplay trainings.


Theraplay is an evidence-based child and family therapy designed to build and enhance attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement. With a track record of over fifty years in practice, Theraplay is based on the natural patterns of playful, healthy interaction between parent and child and is personal, physical, and fun. Theraplay sessions create an active, emotional connection between the child and parent or caregiver, resulting in a changed view of the child as worthy and lovable and of relationships as positive and rewarding. We call this “building relationships from the inside out.”

Theraplay offers this unique set of advantages over other training you might be considering:

  • Evidence-based rating by SAMHSA
  • Attachment based and trauma informed
  • Firmly grounded in the latest neuroscience of brain development
  • Practical skills which are easily implemented, even with the most oppositional clients
  • Can be successfully combined with a wide range of other treatment modalities
  • Doesn’t require investment in a lot of toys, props, or elaborate room set-ups
  • Works on a pre-verbal level with children ages 0-18
  • Involves the caregivers in the process so that they can support the work at home, often reducing the length of treatment
What is Included

Theraplay Local includes travel for our trainer(s) to any location in the U.S. or Canada; Theraplay books and Level One Resource Manuals for each participant, CE letters, access to training handouts, and two free web group supervision meetings for each participant.*

At no additional charge we will meet with key administrative and clinical staff to discuss best practices for implementation once the training is complete. Administrative staff are welcome to join us free of charge for an overview of Theraplay, which takes place the first morning of training. This overview will give support staff the understanding of Theraplay they need to optimize implementation and help ensure that clinical staff are providing the highest quality service.
