Play Therapy Institute

30 Continuing Education Hours
Join counseling graduate students, mental health professionals, and mental health preparation program faculty members from throughout the United States and the world for an international institute in which play therapy in the United States and Italy will be explored. American and Italian mental health professionals (including counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychiatrists, and social workers) will give presentations to participants. In addition, participants who are doctoral students or university professors may apply to make presentations to participants. Presentation proposals that are accepted will be refereed presentations at an international conference.
This institute offers the comfort and security of a planned itinerary that includes an American guide who is fluent in Italian. Participants stay the entire duration of the institute in the same room in a magnificent 15th century villa that features a spectacular view of the Tuscan hillside. Visits to the small Italian town of Reggello are possible and provide a flavor of Italy that can only be experienced in the rural countryside. In addition, the ancient cities in Tuscany of Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Siena will be visited.
