About the Synergetic Play Therapy Institute™

The Synergetic Play Therapy Institute™ (SPTI) is home to Synergetic Play Therapy™ (SPT), a researched-informed model of play therapy combining the therapeutic powers of play with nervous system regulation, interpersonal neurobiology, physics, attachment, mindfulness, and therapist authenticity.

The Institute is over a decade in the making, the foundation laid when SPT began back in 2008. As interest grew, we adapted. Once a segment of the Play Therapy Institute of Colorado, it became clear from the worldwide demand that SPT needed to be the focal point of our mission. And so SPTI was born, seizing the reins and blazing a new trail.

We are committed to providing an array of professional online and in-person trainings and services to therapists, teachers, parents, and organizations across the globe. Our teachings are wide-ranging, with everything from online introductory courses and video courses to certification and supervision. We also feature several resources for anyone interested in SPT and play therapy in general. We offer weekly blogs, bi-weekly podcasts, bi-monthly webinars, as well as other dynamic and diverse learning opportunities.

Welcome.

“The education, supervision and support I am receiving through my training in Synergetic Play Therapy has been phenomenal. I am coming in to myself as a therapist in new and amazing ways. And the shifts I am experiencing with my clients have been profound. To have permission to be authentic with myself and my clients is truly liberating, not just for me but for them, as well. With Lisa’s support and guidance, as well as the community of talented and mindful therapists at PTIC, I feel more confident and inspired in my work as a therapist than ever before.”
