How do I become a Registered Play Therapist?
The credentials Registered Play Therapist, Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor and School Based-Registered Play Therapist are conferred by the Association for Play Therapy.
You can find their application, guide and FAQ on their website here.
While Jen Taylor can provide guidance about using play therapy with children, adults and families and her experiences in the credentialing process, she does not represent the Association for Play Therapy. There are no guarantees that your application will be approved by the Association for Play Therapy. All application related questions should be directed to the Association for Play Therapy.
Play therapy related supervision and case consultation can be beneficial for those who are not seeking credentialing through the Association for Play Therapy. If you are outside of the US, it is your responsibility to know and understand any rules or regulations related to play therapy in your area.
When are the meetings?
There are typically around 8 meetings per month and you can sign up for any two that fit into your schedule. We will discuss the current openings during your free phone consult. Upon enrollment, you have full access to the schedule. Typically, meetings are held around lunch hours or in the early evenings to work around your client needs.
How long does a subscription last?
Upon enrollment, your monthly subscription renews automatically each month. You can cancel anytime and there are no long term contracts or obligations.
What if I miss a meeting?
It is your responsibility to schedule your two group meetings per month. If you have a client emergency or illness that prevents you from attending on your scheduled day, you can easily rebook during one of the other available sessions that month. However, your subscription is not refunded if you do not attend the two sessions per month.
What happens if Jen cancels a meeting?
I have three toddlers and occasionally I will have to cancel a meeting. If this happens, I will either provide a 30 minute individual session or provide a pro-rated refund for that session.
How do the meetings work?
We meet using a HIPAA compliant video conferencing system called Vsee. You will need to create a free account. Simply login at the scheduled time and Jen will call you to connect to the call. It’s just like Facetime or Skype, but more secure.
How do I send you my play session recording?
You don’t! During a secure video call, you can simply share your screen. Your recorded video will play and allow us to stop and pause to discuss.
How many people are in a group?
There is a maximum of 6 participants in each group.
Does this count for my state licensure as well?
Generally, no. If you are not already licensed, you need to have a state approved supervisor for your licensure needs.
If you are currently living in Hawaii, then we need to discuss your situation.
