3.5 Day and 4.5 Day Certified Synergetic Play Therapy Retreat Attendance 2023-2024 – For Certified Synergetic Play Therapists and Play Providers

I am always excited to repeat the retreats as an alumni for three reasons. First, there is always new information to be had. Second, each time I hear the information that Lisa imparts, I hear it in a different way. Lastly, it is so wonderful to be in such a supportive environment with like-minded people. I can’t get enough!Johanna Simmons
