💜  Share SPT through mini-teachings: While you must be approved to teach and train others in Synergetic Play Therapy (all training lies under the umbrella of SPTI), you can offer mini teachings of various principles, present at conferences, etc. (3 hours long is a great time length). As a reminder, you may teach the following topics in individual parts as long as you are not training therapists in SPT: Brain Function, Nervous System Regulation,  Authenticity/Congruency, and The Set Up/ The Offering. When you teach, you only need to make it clear to your students that they are not being trained in SPT or doing an Intro to SPT Training and then provide them materials with information about the Intro to SPT course and other SPTI programs. And remember, if you do a mini-teaching, you can count it toward future CE re-certification.

💜  Stay connected with us: Hang out with us in the private SPT Learning Community Facebook group, on Instagram or like us on Facebook; join Lisa and special guests for the weekly Lessons from the Playroom podcast; meet up with us at a conference, training or other event virtually or in-person; read our monthly newsletter or our blogs!; check out all our free short videos; or go purchase some of our one-hour, two-hour or three-hour courses (can also be counted toward recertification credit).

Re-Certification Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy® Webinar 3 (Just Renewal Students) – June 2023 – November 2023

Lisa is wanting to connect with you!

This webinar is exclusive to you as you are choosing to renew your Certified Synergetic Play Therapist™ or Certified Synergetic Play Provider Credential. 

***Reminder that this webinar is required to be attended LIVE as it will not be recorded.***

Please come prepared with your questions and anything else that you want to ask Lisa regarding what you are learning/reviewing.  This is your time to get feedback regarding your understanding, so take advantage!

And just to normalize any anxiety about possibly asking Lisa a question that might show a lack of understanding about an SPT concept- you are not alone!  Lisa fully understands that everyone is on a learning curve and that it was IMPOSSIBLE to learn/integrate everything the first time you took your introductory course- that is why your re-certification asks you to review the foundation of SPT again and again.  So please bring your questions, even if the question is “What is the Set Up?” 😉
