I am considering training to become a play therapist. Am a bit overwhelmed at the number of training courses available!! I am already a qualified primary teacher. Anyone out there who has already qualified recommended a plan of action?
Hi, I am hoping to train as a Play Therapist. I volunteer with a local organisation called Carefree Kids as a Therapeutic Playworker so can maybe answer some questions? Best books to start are Dibs:in search of self by Virginia Axline, or Garry Landreth Play Therapy. Am hoping to start with a certificate with IATE, but I know people who have done the Play therapy UK accredited one. Good luck!
I'm a long way off being able to train for a career (am ill ATM but it's not permanent hopefully!) but this is something that appealed too. Is it necessarily a postgraduate qualification where you need to be something else already or can you go straight into say a degree in it? (I don't have a degree as became too ill to study)
I have used a play therapist, I hope you turn out better than her! Do you know what area you want to work in? My experience is through my adopted daughter and I have come across playtherapy which is an attachment based therapy and filial therapy which is a non-directive play therapy
