The Michigan Play Therapy Training Academy offers workshops on a variety of play therapy topics.  These 2024 workshops are ONLINE AND LIVE.  Sign up for one workshop ... or a whole series. Register for what works best for YOU.

The trainings will follow APT's guidelines for live webinar trainings ... which means the workshop will be live and interactive, there will be no more than 40 participants, cameras must be kept on, and each workshop will include a post-test for attendees that must be taken and passed to earn the live webinar training hours within 2 weeks of the training.

If you are just starting to learn about play therapy it is recommended that you start at the beginning of the series, as some workshops build upon each other.  However, it is not required to attend the workshops sequentially.


 All trainings are taught by Laura Hutchison, PsyD, LP, RPT/S 

(APT Approved Provider 15-407).


all workshops are ONLINE, LIVE, and in Eastern Standard Time
