Course summary

Course Details

Become a qualified play therapist and help children come to terms with traumatic events in their lives. Through the use of play, you will give children the confidence and opportunity to express themselves during their time with you. Whether you are looking for a career change, already work in psychological therapy, social work or in medicine and want to add therapeutic play to your existing skill set, or if you are a graduate just starting out in the field and want to refine your knowledge, this professional course, delivered in partnership with the Academy of Play and Child Psychotherapy (APAC), and accredited by the professional body Play Therapy UK, will enable you to work under supervision with individual children who have slight to moderate problems.

Course Benefits

You will undertake 100 hours of clinical practice in either a primary school, special needs school, nursery, primary health care, hospital, care home or adoption and foster care setting, where you will apply your learning in a practical setting. Our School of Health & Community Studies has a well-established playwork team and over recent years has developed close links with APAC and professional organisations Play Therapy UK and Play Therapy International.
