Althea Simpson made an incredible mark on mental health professionals w/ her inaugural Black Play Therapy Symposium. It’s a must in helping others, offering better services & increasing your tribe. Well done. Check out her play therapy academy. To help an adult is to help their inner child. To help a child, speak their language of play!

Attended and presented at the Black Play Therapy Symposium...with great speakers and educational sessions, inspiring messages, creative interventions, and so many people doing great things to help improve the lives of African American children and families. I truly enjoyed the people, the honest conversations about our community, and hearing about all of the great work business owners, educators, authors, and of course clinicians are doing. Every session was on point! Thank you Ms. Althea Simpson for creating this dedicated space to help us help our children and families. I look forward to next years event!! #BPTS 💜
