The Child Counseling Center and Play Therapy Institute of New Mexico offers workshops towards the Registered Play Therapist (RPT) certification.   

The RPT process takes a minimum of two years with a maximum of 7 year time frame.

The process is arranged in three phases.  Each phase requires a certain number of continuing education hours, supervision hours and experience with children hours.

Our workshops fit in to each of the required hours.     
We are happy to consult with you and help you navigate some of the process. 

Once everything, in the three phases, is completed you will apply for the Registered Play Therapist certification through the Association for Play Therapy.
