COMING SOON!

Become the Culturally Inclusive Play Therapist your clients deserve with the new

InclusivePlay™ Certificate!

The InclusivePlay™ Certificate Program

This play-based certificate program will help play therapists increase their proficiency in utilizing play therapy with children and families from diverse populations in individual, family and group play therapy. The full certification will provide 36 APT live webinar CEs and 6 non-contact self-study APT CEs that can be applied towards Phase 2 for mental health professionals working towards their credential to become a Registered Play Therapist™. 

 

Founded by Yuvi Rattigan, Carmen Jimenez-Pride, and April Duncan, our goal is to increase the number of culturally inclusive play therapists who have a foundational knowledge of important cultural factors when working with clients from marginalized communities in the playroom and beyond. This certificate is for play therapists who are looking to increase their inclusivity in play therapy with clients of all backgrounds, in an effort to reduce misdiagnosis in children and families with diverse backgrounds.
