Ethical Self-Care for the Play Therapist

Presented by: Teri V. Krull, LCSW, Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor™

This in-person training is for the current or aspiring RPT or RPT-S and is designed to support the professional integrity and ethical balance of the play therapist.  Self-care is essential in the helping professions and is often overlooked while providing care.  This training will discuss the history of self-care as well as the unique challenges of incorporating self-care as a natural extension of quality service.
