National Association for Play Therapy

The California Association for Play Therapy (CalAPT) is a California non-profit corporation chartered in 1993. We are a state branch of the Association for Play Therapy (APT). Our primary purpose is to provide a forum for the discussion of play therapy ideas and concerns. We accomplish this by:

​Education & Training – Conduct, encourage, and foster educational trainings, meetings, and workshops.

Annual Conferences – Host two annual conferences, one in Northern California and one in Southern California, which provide CEU hours.

Communication – Connect with our membership, the mental health community, and the general public through quarterly newsletters, email, and social media.
