VAPT sponsors professional development for it members and other mental health providers. Our statewide and chapter training opportunities are approved for continuing education and will be listed on the APT site and our Facebook fan page.

In addition to courses offered by institutions of higher education, the Association for Play Therapy accepts play therapy credit to satisfy its Registered Play Therapist (RPT) and Supervisor (RPT-S) credentialing criteria for trainings offered by APT Approved Providers. VAPT is an approved provider.

Trainings may also be approved by other mental health disciplines for licensure or certification purposes. Each training event will note the continuing education hours it is awarding.
