Presenting Our 25th Year Anniversary Video Series

Our latest offering:
Black Dolls and Plaited Hair: 5 Considerations When Working with Afro Canadian Children in Play Therapy

In our second webinar, RMPTI Director Lorri Yasenik meets with Mercy Yeboah-Ampadu.

"Mercy and I have been friends and colleagues for well over a decade, and she has been instrumental in providing me with valuable insight/knowledge into the cultural perspectives of the Afro-Canadian Community.

Owing to the great success of her presentation during the Diversity Workshop last October, I thought what better place to continue this series than with an expert, colleague and friend. Mercy presents five considerations when working with Afro-Canadian Children in the play therapy setting. In her latest offering, Mercy emphasizes the ways you can bring cultures together through understanding by exploring inner narratives and celebrating diversity within this growing community."

- Lorri A Yasenik, PhD, RSW, RPT-S, CPT-S

A special continuing education for play therapists webinar series.

These short training videos are provided in celebration of Rocky Mountain Play Therapy Institute’s 25th Anniversary. The webinars consist of special topics of interest to Play Therapists and Therapeutic Play Practitioners presented by senior play therapists. To gain CE credit participants will need to complete the online multiple choice mastery test. A Certificate of Completion will then be provided.

2022 is our 25th Anniversary year.  And what better way to celebrate than to offer the Seriously Fun Tips for a reduced fee of 25 dollars.  Each presenter has gladly donated their time to RMPTI  and so we are offering each webinar below cost.  It is our gift to our friends.

This year only $25 each
