YELLOW STREAM: Intensive Specialized Certificate Programs
The Yellow Stream offers a range of specialized one, two and three day certificate programs. Each intensive certificate program provides training hours toward Certification/Registration as a Play Therapist. The Three-Day Certificate Programs offer specialized experiential training, leading to a stand-alone certificate. All programs are accredited and count toward education/training hours required to become a Certified/Registered Play Therapist.
INTRODUCTION TO PLAY THERAPY: On-Line Program
This on-line program provides 7 non-contact hours of continuing education. It is part of the Green Stream Foundations Play Therapy Program but may be taken as a stand-alone program. The on-line component lasts approximately 2.25 hours. There is also a Mastery Quiz based on the on-line component, as well as the two primary/assigned textbooks for the Green Stream Program (The Play Therapy Dimensions Model 2nd edition – Yasenik & Gardner, 2014; Play Therapy: The Art of the Relationship- 2nd or 3rd edition- Gary Landreth). Participants must purchase these books separately. To receive the full 7 non-contact credit hours, participants must obtain a mark of 80% on the Mastery Test (a 40-item, true-false questionnaire).
This program will appeal to those interested in learning about the wide-ranging applications of therapeutic play skills and play therapy, and who are examining career pathways and choices. This on-line program introduces participants to the history of play therapy and the therapeutic play continuum, which differentiates basic play activities from therapeutic play and play therapy. Non-directive and directive play techniques used in play therapy are discussed and participants will examine a variety of play mediums: sandplay, puppet play; dramatic/symbolic play, and art work.
Entrance Requirements: Attending or completed post-secondary education.
Award: Certificate of Attendance (7 non-contact continuing education hours)
