You can bring Theraplay® training to your home town!
We want to make your Theraplay training as easy as possible! If you don’t see an option that works for you, or if you would like more specifics about on-site training, please Contact Us. For a list of recent training sponsors: Who has sponsored Theraplay Training?
The maximum number of participants at any one training is 30. We have a trainer to participant ratio of 1:10, so for every ten people we will need to send one trainer. All sponsors must provide an appropriate training venue, A-V equipment, and assistance with local arrangements. See each option for further information.
Closed Contracted Training: If you have 10 or more people to train, or would like to partner with other professionals in your area to train up to thirty people, we will create a training proposal just for you, tailored to your clientele and/or staff. This training would not be open to the general public. This is the only way we arrange training outside of North America. Training fees are based upon number of participants. Additional costs include travel for the trainer(s), refreshments, handout duplication, play supplies, and any venue costs.
Closed Training Special: If you happen to be within 100 miles of one of our Certified Trainers, we will come do the training for up to ten people at the regular registration rate of $750/person. All you need to do is supply the venue and A-V equipment.
Hosted Training: Anyone who can provide a free venue, A-V equipment, and organizational support can host a training. The Theraplay Institute takes all financial responsibility except for venue costs. As a "thank you" for hosting, we will give you a $750 training scholarship to use however you wish (one person registers for free or several people can split the scholarship). Generally, we need at least 15 people to make a hosted training feasible. This option is available only within the Continental U.S. and Canada. Successful hosts are ones that actively promote the training to their colleagues.
Sponsored Training: This arrangement allows your agency to earn up to ten free registrations on a sliding scale based upon the number of paid registrations from outside your agency. There is no financial risk to you as the training can be canceled thirty days prior if there are insufficient registrants; but you are asked to take more responsibility for the training by copying and assembling the handouts and providing refreshments.
Presentations: For larger groups or conferences, we have presentations ranging in length from one hour to two days. Content can be customized to fit your needs and audience, whether it be professionals, paraprofessionals or parents. Programs include:
- MIM training for those who only work with assessments
- One-day Introduction to Theraplay seminar
- Theraplay for Adoptive/Foster Parents
- Short presentations about any aspect of Theraplay
- Theraplay Groups for Pre-Schools and Schools
