Improve your work with children and families.

Training in Theraplay is just the first step to advancing your practice and changing the way you work with children and their families. Certification is an investment in yourself, your practice, and your community. Learn more about each program to see what might be right for you.

Theraplay certification is limited to those with a masters or doctoral degree and a clinical license to earn the credential of Certified Theraplay Practitioner. Social workers seeking certification that are not mental health clinicians would seek a credential of Foundational Theraplay Practitioner at the end of their certification training.
