This 5-Day Retreat is part of the 10-Month Synergetic Play Therapy® Certification Program. The Certification Program is open to those who have completed either the Six-Day Synergetic Play Therapy® Intensive, the Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy® course, or the Synergetic Play Therapy® Supplemental to a 2-Day Training. If you have completed one of these and are interested in moving towards certification, please see the details below or get more information here

Are you a Masters-level (or equivalent) therapist or clinician ready to take your Synergetic Play Therapy® skills to the next level? With 87 hours of content, the Certification program propels you on a journey of inquiry about how healing truly occurs in the playroom. You will learn about nervous system activation re-patterning and how integration occurs in the mind-body. You will study in-depth the projective process and the mind, perceptions and memory, interpersonal neurobiology, and will have a transformative understanding of attachment theory. But this isn’t the best part of this training. The best part is what happens to YOU! This program is designed to not only help you learn how to facilitate your child client’s healing, but also teach you about yourself, what drives you to be who you are, and awaken your own authenticity … absolutely PRICELESS!!!!

The course begins with four days together in community (this year we’ll be offering the first retreat online). Halfway through the course, we will reconvene for an additional four and a half days.  During the program (with the exception of December and January), the course will be conducted twice a month via live webinar. The Certification process includes six one-hour supervision sessions (after concluding your introductory course) and nine one-hour supervision sessions during the course with an SPT Supervisor for a total of 15 supervision hours. These sessions are designed to help you integrate and deepen your learning.

Please note: Completion of The Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy® course, the Six-Day Synergetic Play Therapy® Intensive, or Synergetic Play Therapy® Supplemental course to a 2-day training is required for acceptance into the Certification Program.
