Ethical Issues in Play Therapy Supervision

As a play therapist supervisor supporting supervisees (or if you’re on your 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. 

Per the Association for Play Therapy (2019), some of the ethical issues that arise during the process of play therapy, as well as supervision can consist of counselor or supervisor competence and training, multiple relationships, informed consent, and confidentiality.  As such, questions like the ones below are common questions asked by new play therapy supervisors and re-asked by seasoned play therapy supervisors. 

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

To address these important ethical issues and questions, The Synergetic Play Therapy Institute is teaming up with Liliana Baylon, LMFT-S, RPT-S* to offer you a 3-hour course on Ethical Issues in Play Therapy Supervision. This LIVE webinar workshop will help you as a Play Therapist Supervisor manage both the administrative and clinical aspects of play therapy supervision while adhering to general ethical considerations and guidelines.
