WELCOME to the 6 month Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy Course!
I am so glad that you have chosen to sign up for this course and that we will have a chance to learn and grow together for the next six months. In order to help you get started, please read through this message (I know it is long), but it will orient you to all of the information that you need.
As a reminder, in this six-month online course, we will explore the basic components of Synergetic Play Therapy™ and truly have a one-of-a-kind experience. This course was designed for both beginners and advanced practitioners. The course runs six months and includes a mix of three, one-hour LIVE webinars with me, six 2.5 hour recorded video courses and monthly 30 minute consultations with an SPT Supervisor/Consultant to help you integrate what you are learning. If you interested in APT-Approved CE credits, you will have the opportunity to print out a certificate after watching each recording and taking a short quiz.
If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask. We are here for you and want to make this a great experience for you. I am looking forward to being with you,
You are responsible for attending the 3 one-hour live webinars. This is your time to feel part of the community, to interact and ask questions directly to Lisa. If for some reason you are not able to attend the live webinars, the webinar recording will be posted to this site within 24 hours of the recording. You must watch it before your monthly consultation for the month.
We use zoom.us as our platform. For best quality, please us a high internet speed connection or plugged in with a landline. You will be asked to turn your camera on, so please be prepared to do so. We want you to be a part of the live webinars.
The course kicks of LIVE on February 20th, 2018. MST. https://zoom.us/j/639865999
You are responsible for watching all of the videos in this course. Since this course builds on itself, you will not be able to watch the next video until you have watched the previous one and completed the quiz. This includes the webinars. It is important to watch the class video before you meet with your consultant for the month.
Consultations- These monthly 30 minutes are a time for you to personalize the material of the course to deepen your learning. ***For this particular class we are offering YOU 2 longer BONUS consultations. When you schedule your 2nd and 3rd consultation sessions you will receive a full hour of support, in stead of 30 minutes, at no extra charge.***
This time is not supervision for all of the children you work with. You will be asked to choose one or two children that you work with that you would like to focus on throughout the class. If you are not currently working with children, you will decide on another relationship that you would like to discuss as you explore Synergetic Play Therapy. As a reminder, you are required to maintain updated insurance and abide by the rules outlined by your governing board.
Your consultation sessions will either be in person or via the computer depending on where you and your consultant live. You are assigned to a Synergetic Play Therapy consultant based on the answer you provided in step #2 (see above). These individuals are Certified Synergetic Play Therapists and supervisors of this work. They are awesome and will be a huge asset to you throughout this course! Your consultant will contact you to schedule your consultation times closer to the start of the course.
