💜 WELCOME BACK – Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy® Refresher! 💜

We are so glad that you have chosen to come back to join us for this Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy® Refresher! During the next six months, as a past student who has taken any SPT introductory course (Online Intro, Supplemental, or an SPT Intensive), you’ll be able to review, learn, and deepen your understanding of the basic principles of SPT.

Each month you’ll get access to short video clips that highlight important and key introductory concepts of SPT. This will be followed by a monthly LIVE one-hour webinar with Judy Norman, Certified SPT Therapist, Supervisor,  Teacher, and Co-Founder of the Synergetic Education Institute, for an opportunity to come back into community and strengthen your understanding as she explains, elaborates, and flushes out the nuances – that’s six new opportunities to review, connect, and deepen your learning of the basic principles of Synergetic Play Therapy®.

Community & Resources:

Ongoing Consultation:  While not part of this Intro to SPT refresher, we understand how consultation can be a very important part of your learning, growth, and journey as a therapist. We’d strongly recommend adding in some individual or group consultation from a Senior Intro Consultant, while taking part in this refresher program. You can access it here for a fee. Choose 1, 2 or up to 6 sessions at a time. And if you get a group together (one of the best ways to learn!), you get a discount. 

Aggression in Play Therapy book: Have your book handy and review chapters as we go along. 

Refresher Access & Video Clips: Each month you’ll receive access to short video clips to review key SPT introductory concepts. You’ll find the video clips on the corresponding lesson along with handouts and additional resources/short videos to supplement your learning. Please note that some of the video clips are from the Online Introduction to SPT course, while others are updated recordings. Access to all content will be available until August 31st, 2023.

Live Webinars: Come back into community each month for a one-hour LIVE webinar with Judy Norman. During the webinars, Judy will add in new understandings, as well as help you review, deepen, and continue to apply the basic principles of SPT into your clinical practice or daily life. Plus, Lisa is constantly learning herself and tightening up the teachings, so you’ll also get to hear new nuances and insights that have become part of SPT teachings. *We hope you can attend, but if you’re unable to make it, these live webinars will be recorded and a replay will be available to watch or re-watch at your leisure

About Your Teacher: Judy Norman is a Certified SPT Teacher, Certified SPT Supervisor and Co-trainer with Lisa for the SPT Certification program.  She is also the co-founder with Lisa of the Synergetic Education Institute (SEI). SEI trains and empowers educators (district and site level administrators, school-based mental health professionals, classroom and special teachers, and support personnel) in ways to support students from a neuroscience, nervous system regulation, interpersonal neurobiology, and social-emotional framework.

Credits: *Please note that as this is a review of the basic SPT concepts that you learned in your previous SPT introduction level 1 course, CE credits do not apply. 

Recertification: If you’re a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist or Certified Synergetic Play Provider and would like to count some of the hours of this course towards your recertification, you can count up to 6 hours (attendance at each live webinar counts as 1 credit hour).  Email the Institute if you’d like more details about the recertification requirements. (Note: The refresher does not replace the Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy course.)
