A very warm welcome to the Irish Play Therapy Community Association. A resource for Play Therapists to join a community that fosters compassion, kindness, understanding and support.
It also offers a resource for parents/carers who wish to learn more about Play Therapy and to locate a Play Therapist in their area.
The main aim of the association is to nurture and develop high standards of practice and training.
This is available to both students and certified play therapists. The association offers support and guidance to its members.
This is to ensure the greater community receives appropriate standards of professional practice.
It aims to provide continuous professional development by providing relevant play therapy trainings to increase standards of services provided.
IPTCA values the qualities of community, compassion, kindness, understanding, support and encouragement. Self-care and self-awareness for all therapists is paramount to our practice.
The association aims to be inclusive of all members to ensure their needs are heard and met wherever possible by striving to be congruent and authentic in their professional practice. These core principles come from the roots of this professional body.
