Play Therapy Practitioners Association

The Play Therapy Practitioners Association was founded in 2018 by a group of likeminded professionals keen to advocate for the training and provision of play therapy services across Australia. Identifying contemporary and emerging processes for registration, PTPA was created to provide an opportunity for practitioners passionate about play therapy to access training and registration in order to practice in Australia. Additionally, the Association aims to promote the profession to the wider community in order to advocate for the approach to be used as the preferred method of therapy for children and young people.  

The association provides registration for play therapists in Australia under the following four membership categories:

  • Affiliate
  • Associate
  • Registered Play Therapist
  • Registered Play Therapist- Supervisor  

Centre for Play Therapy’s clinical training program is recognised as one of the pathways to become a registered play therapist for this association.   For more information please check out the Association’s website at www.playtherapypractitionersassociation.com.au
