The Play Therapy Graduate Certificate involves a four course series housed within the Counselor Education program in the School of Education and Behavior Studies. The certificate program is designed to provide advanced training to students in the Counselor Education program and for practicing counselors and therapists working with children and adolescents.
The certificate is available for current Counselor Education students and post Masters professionals in counseling, human services, psychology, special education, expressive therapies, social work, nursing and other relevant fields, who seek additional treatment orientated skills.
The Play Therapy Graduate Certificate does not directly certify individuals in Play Therapy; however, it can be listed as a Graduate Certificate in Play Therapy as part of one’s credentials. The educational courses are designed toward credentials to be registered as a play therapist. For more information on how this program may prepare you, please contact the program coordinator. Applicants should also contact the Association for Play Therapy to verify the courses needed to be registered as a play therapist.
