Getting Started:

Before the program begins, please make sure you are familiar with and can easily navigate the first three lessons at the bottom of the page: Master Schedule for Consultants, SPT Consultant Supporting Documents & Resources, and Admin Check-In Recordings.

Master Schedule for Consultants – this lesson includes a full list of all the important class dates for the current cohort, upcoming Admin Check-In dates with your Lead Program Consultant, Polly Douglass, and dates for your Cert Consultant Clinical Groups with Supervisor Trainer, Khristine Rolfe. This lesson will also include all of the Zoom Meeting Links needed for the Live Webinars during the  Synergetic Play Therapy® Certification program.

SPT Consultant Supporting Documents & Resources – this is where you will find all of the links, templates, documents, and other resources needed to support you as a Certification Consultant.

Admin Check-In Recordings – all Admin Check-Ins with your Lead Program Consultant will be recorded. Should you need to miss a live check-in date, you will be able to find the recording within this lesson!

Synergetic Play Therapy®  Certification Program Material:

Starting with the Handout lessons (English/Spanish), you are seeing the program exactly as the students see it, so that you are aware of their process.  In addition to understanding what your students are seeing/experiencing, as a Certification Consultant, it is incredibly important that you are staying up to date on the program material. As module content is updated, any updates or changes will be reflected in this guidebook.

You are welcome to move through the program lessons, below, at a pace that feels the most manageable to you as long as you are caught up on the material before you meet with your students each month. Students will be expected to complete quizzes at the end of each module, those quizzes have not been included in the guidebook to allow you to move through the material with ease.

Individual/Group Consultations:  

You will be assigned students by the Lead Program Consultant before the start of the program (by mid June). These student assignments will be based on time zones you requested to support and group sizes determined by your Cert Consultant contract. You will support your students for one Pre-Certification consultation in late July/early August, seven Individual consultations, and two Group consultations during the 10 month program.

Within the SPT Consultant Supporting Documents & Resources lesson, below, you will find the information you need for leading your monthly consultations. The lesson will include email templates to help you welcome and guide your students through Make-Up Consultation steps (if needed), general content you should be focusing on each month, and guided Consultation Notes to help you stay organized so that you can focus on the right brain, relational part we love!

CE Credits: 

Please note that as you work through the following lessons, you will see language referencing CE Credits. This information is applicable to students enrolled in this program only and for your reference should you need to assist students with questions. As a Certification Consultant, you will not receive CE Credits for completing the lessons below.

If you have any questions or need support along the way, please do not hesitate to contact your Lead Program Consultant, Polly, by emailing polly@synergeticplaytherapy.com or the Institute by emailing info@synergeticplaytherapy.com.
