Ethical Issues in Play Therapy Supervision (2024)

As a Play Therapist Supervisor supporting supervisees (or as someone on their way to becoming a supervisor), you know that working with children and their families involves a complexity that is like no other, especially when thinking about legal and ethical considerations. 

When navigating the ethical issues that arise during the play therapy process, we have found that many Play Therapy Supervisors often ask:

  • What exactly is my role and how do I stay in my role?
  • What should my paperwork and documentation look like?
  • What are my ethical responsibilities as a supervisor?
  • How do I increase my awareness on how cultural diversity impacts play therapy, and thus supervision?”

To address these and other important questions, Liliana Baylon, LMFT-S, RPT-S* and the Synergetic Play Therapy Institute’s Cultural Ambassador, will lead you through a 3-hour online course on the topic of “Ethical Issues in Play Therapy Supervision”. This live webinar course will help you and other Play Therapist Supervisors manage both the administrative and clinical aspects of play therapy supervision while adhering to general ethical considerations and guidelines.

And, if you are a Certified SPTer planning to enroll in the next offering of the Becoming a Certified Synergetic Play Therapy Supervisor program, completion of this course will count toward the program requirement of completing a course related to the topics of legal and/or ethics in play therapy supervision! This is an opportunity to get that requirement out of the way now!
