Do you believe in the power of play but are unsure of how to use it professionally?
Is imposter syndrome getting in the way of you finally becoming a play therapist?
Do you have endless questions about play therapy (how to explain it to parents, what toys are necessary, am I actually doing this correctly) and want the support of an expert in the field?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, Kait is the supervisor for you!
Play Therapy Supervision for Mental Health Professionals
Kait provides supervision to child therapists working towards their Registered Play Therapist (RPT) and Child Centered Play Therapist (CCPT) credentials
So what does that mean?
Registered Play Therapist (RPT)
Through the Association for Play Therapy (APT)
Internationally recognized credential in the field of play therapy. If someone is looking for a play therapist, they are generally looking for someone with an RPT credential.
To obtain the credential, you need 35 supervision hours (including 5 observed sessions) from a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S). Applicants also need a degree and active license in clinical mental health or a related profession, 150 hours of play therapy specific instruction, and 350 direct client hours under the supervision of an RPT-S.
Child Centered Play Therapist (CCPT)
Although the CCPT credential is less recognized as the RPT credential, the training provides a strong foundation in Child-Centered Play Therapy, which is incredibly valuable for any play therapist.
The CCPT credential can be earned while working towards the RPT credential or vice versa.
To obtain the credential, supervisees submit 26 tapes to be reviewed and discussed in supervision. In addition, individuals must have earned a master's degree in a helping profession or currently be matriculated in such a program, and have a 3 credit graduate level course completed in play therapy or the equivalent in workshops.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does this cost?
I charge $150 per 60 minute supervision session.
What will be covered in supervision?
I view supervision as very individualistic and tailored for each supervisee that I work with. Just like how not every child in therapy need the same thing, not every supervisee needs the same thing. Some common topics that I do cover with many supervisees include how to work with parents in child therapy, play therapy themes, and integrating directive and non-directive play therapy.
I have a really difficult case and just want to consult a few times about it. Can you help with this?
I love consulting with therapists about cases. Reach out by completing the contact form below and I'll connect with you ASAP.
I don't need supervision hours towards credentialing, but would love to work with you as a supervisor. What are the next steps?
