8:00 – 10:00 am Central / 9:00 – 11:00 am Eastern
The TNAPT Board invites members to attend this much needed webinar.
The holidays are swiftly approaching, and our clientele are increasingly multicultural.
Learn how to incorporate best practice, culturally competent play therapy skills
and techniques to your practice during the winter holiday season.
About this Event:
The holiday season brings a host of additional stressors and issues of inclusion in these already difficult times. Clinicians strive to be culturally competent, especially about beliefs and traditions tied to the holiday season. This webinar will serve as a guide for play therapists to navigate a variety of holiday traditions, including play activities that are culturally sensitive. Play Therapists will be able to incorporate learned skills into their clinical approach and techniques into in person and online telehealth services. Ethical considerations, diversity and limitations will also be explored.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the movements through cultural knowledge, awareness, sensitivity and competence.
2. Identify holiday traditions in a variety of beliefs, faiths and cultures.
3. Demonstrate appropriate play therapy activities to link to culturally competent holiday traditions.

If you are new to play therapy, TNAPT offers a 6.0 continuing education foundational training to get you started! "Getting Started in Play Therapy" is offered on a recurring basis as often as needed and can also be brought to on-site as well. Please go to the "New to Play Therapy" page for more info. We soon plan to be expanding this training by offering this virtually due to COVID-19. Foundational training is a necessary component if you are working towards your RPT/RPT-S/SB- RPT, so if you missed that step along the way, this is one way to obtain that training. Next date: TBA

The Tennessee Association for Play Therapy (TNAPT) was formed in 1993 as a branch of the Association for Play Therapy. Our goal then and now remains the same: to promote play therapy by providing information, networking and workshops. It is our hope that this website can provide updated information to assist this goal.
Play Therapy is the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development. (Association for Play Therapy)
Why play? Play is a child's natural form of communication as they express themselves more fully with their play.
