Capella University's online Play Therapy certificate helps you deepen your therapeutic connection with the children you serve. You will learn the theory, methodology and applications of play therapy from expert faculty who live (and love) what they teach. The faculty leaders who created these courses – and all instructors in the program – are registered play therapists or registered play therapist supervisors.

This certificate addresses the core academic content areas required by the Association of Play Therapy to earn its Registered Play Therapist (RPT) and/or Supervisor (RPT-S) credentials. For information on credentials in Canada or the UK, please consult the Canadian Association for Child and Play Therapy or the British Association for Play Therapy.

To learn more about this certificate program, request more information and we will match you with an enrollment counselor who specializes in your area of study.
