Black Play Therapy

Paly Therapy Credentialing

Social Justice Program

At the Black Play Therapy Foundation, we understand the crucial role that mental health professionals, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, play in fostering community well-being. In line with our commitment to social justice and equity, we are excited to introduce our ‘Social Justice’ training program. This program, tailored specifically for licensed Black mental health professionals aspiring to become registered play therapists, offers unique benefits to enhance your professional journey.

Objective of the Program

Our Social Justice program is not just about alleviating financial burdens, it’s about providing comprehensive support and resources. We want to enable more Black therapists to participate and succeed by offering a program that is tailored to their needs. This program is crafted to support the recruitment and training of licensed Black mental health professionals, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. We aim to provide these professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the stringent credentialing requirements to submit their Registered Play Therapist™ (RPT™) applications. By focusing on this professional population, we hope to address the systemic barriers that often hinder access to specialized training and career advancement in the mental health field, empowering professionals to excel in their careers.
