Presentations and Trainings...

One of my favorite things to do is present and train about play and expressive therapies.  As part of my role as President of the Tennessee Association for Play Therapy (TNAPT), I present foundational play therapy trainings on behalf of TNAPT both at my office site or I can tailor a program for agencies or specific locations. These foundational trainings are approved by APT (Association for Play Therapy) for those seeking credentialing as a RPT, RPT-S or SB-RPT as well as for maintaining those credentials. These can be done in small group settings as well as large conferences.

Sometimes my role with TNAPT includes promotions about play therapy and APT/TNAPT and to help others both within and outside my profession understand play therapy and the value of play. 

I also present outside of my TNAPT role on custom topics both regionally and nationally.  In the past these presentations have included topics in addition to play and creative arts therapies to include specific populations and issues such as child sexual abuse, divorce adjustments and other topics.
