The Synergetic Play Therapy™ Supplemental Course is open to those who have already completed a two-day training with Lisa Dion. It is an online course that supplements the information not received during the two-day training you’ve previously completed. It involves the review of key points as well as new information aimed at providing you with the missing pieces of the SPT puzzle.

- Completion or enrollment in a Master’s Degree (or equivalent) program in counseling, social work, or education

- A basic understanding of play therapy and play therapy skills
- Attendance and completion of a recent Lisa Dion two-day training
This course includes nine hours of recorded content and six consultations** with a Synergetic Play Therapy™ Supervisor/Consultant to help you integrate what you are learning.
This course allows you to go at your own pace: you’ll receive all the videos the day you sign up and you can learn as fast or as slow as you like. You can start consultations immediately. You are encouraged to begin consultations as quickly as possible.
