Looking for Networking and Training Opportunities?

Check out your area of the state below for Missouri APT sponsored  Training and Networking opportunities.   While regional workshops and our annual conference has a cost associated with it, generally the trainings and networking events on this page are free of charge.

While these networking and training opportunities are planned and coordinated (on a volunteer basis) by area reps or board members, MAPT members are welcome to offer their time and talent in helping provide brief presentations on various topics, offering their space to hold the meetings, etc. The more diverse the membership participation the stronger we will become.

Members might see something listed as “Peer/Group Supervision”    We offer opportunities throughout the year where peer supervision is available for professionals to bring a difficult situation, case or issue that they’re struggling with and allow the group to help process it.   It’s always helpful to come and learn from others’ experiences. All are welcome (Students, provisional therapists, licenced therapists, etc).

**  Where can YOU get involved? **  Do you specialize in an area and would like to give your time in speaking to other play therapists at a networking meeting? The more play therapists we have that step forward to offer their expertise, the more we can offer in our various areas of the state.   We have some scheduled, but are wanting to schedule more – depending on the involvement of school counselors and agency/private practice counselors. We have so many talented school counselors and play therapists, we would love to have more involvement so we can offer more resources to our local counselors.  We would love to see you at upcoming events.
