Training and Professional Support
“You need to be able to regulate your own feelings in order to empathise with others.”
– Decety, J. Sommerville, J.A. (2003).
An ethical and professional requirement of providing therapeutic and direct work to children is to undertake clinical supervision of your practice.
BAPT define Play therapy clinical supervision as
“A formal and mutually agreed relationship between two (Play) Therapists where the supervisor is a significantly more experienced and competent Play Therapist than the supervisee. The aim of this supervision is to monitor, develop and support the supervisee’s Play Therapy practice. This supervision will be independent of all managerial relationships.”
“There is no greater wealth than wisdom, no greater poverty than ignorance; no greater heritage than culture and no greater support than consultation”
– Ali ibn Abi Talib 656 – 661
