APT-Approved Supervisor Training
For professionals who wish to become RPT-Ss (Registered Play Therapist Supervisors), APT requires training in supervision skills. We offer a distance learning program that partially meets this requirement. It involves the reading of written materials as well as a minimum of two telephone contacts with Dr. VanFleet, in which the training is tailored to your specific needs. Please contact Dr. VanFleet by email or phone (717.249.4707) if you would like more information on this program.
