This course has been accredited by Play Therapy International (PTI).
APAC has run our MA in Practice Based Play Therapy programme at All Hallows Dublin for eight years, lately in partnership with the National University of Ireland. The announcement that All Hallows will cease recruiting students for their own courses has no impact on our Play Therapy courses which will continue in Dublin and Galway as normal.
Anyone interested in using play therapy or developing their skills in working
with children. Also for those wishing to make a career decision.
This is an excellent opportunity to discover if you would enjoy play
therapy work and to acquaint yourself with APAC's training methods.
It is at stage 1 of the PTIrl four stage
The course introduces mainly non-directive
play techniques based upon the humanistic model of Carl Rogers and the
work of Virginia Axline, Mark Barnes, Rachel Pinney and Violet Oaklander. We will be
outlining different techniques in play therapy. Participants will
experience non-directive play therapy for themselves through sandtray
and a dip into the main skills (art, music, movement and storytelling).
