Training

 All symptoms children display in the playroom are the result of a dys-regulated nervous system.”
– Lisa Dion, LPC, RPT-S

No matter what type of training you’re looking for, we can accommodate! We offer online training that allows you to learn and earn from anywhere, in-person training located at various locations in Colorado, and workshops and conferences that take place all over the globe. We offer individual courses as well as months-long programs with both direct and non-direct CE credits.

Beginning in the spring and fall of each year, this six-month course includes three, one-hour LIVE webinars with Lisa Dion, six 2.5-hour recorded videos, and monthly consultations with an SPT Supervisor/Consultant to help you integrate what you are learning. It is designed for masters level therapists and clinicians (or equivalent) and provides the chance to learn from anywhere. Connect without the commute!

The Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy™ launches you on a path towards discovering what showing up in the playroom truly means. It explores what is happening in the play therapy process, how change occurs, and ultimately what it takes to help children heal at profound levels. It invites you to be you!

Special topics such as facilitating sand, art, trauma, and aggressive play are covered from the perspective of nervous system regulation, attunement, attachment, mindfulness, and authenticity. Participants will also learn how to track their client’s changes for parents, teachers, agencies, and themselves.

The Six-Day Synergetic Play Therapy™ Intensive training allows you to jump in and really experience the magic of Synergetic Play Therapy™! We hold these intensives regularly throughout the year at various locations. Sessions are limited to four people in order to permit extensive skill practice with individualized coaching and feedback.

Each participant is paired with a child client with whom they will work every day during the training (under direct supervision and as part of a therapeutic observation team). This is experiential, hands-on learning and a chance to dive into SPT and see if it’s right for you!

Get more information and check out the class schedule here.

Certification takes your Synergetic Play Therapy™ journey one step further. Authenticity, congruency, attunement, camaraderie – this program helps therapists look even deeper while cultivating community and a connection to clients (and each other!). Embark on a revolutionary experience filled with magical, memorable moments! Learn to love YOU and support your child clients as they learn the same. Gain confidence, hone skills, and transform your practice and yourself.

In addition to the above, trainings are offered throughout the year at the Institute and worldwide through other organizations and conferences. For information on attending or booking a customized training, please contact us.

“Lisa Dion came to Tennyson Center for Children and provided a comprehensive, two-day training for more than 20 of our Day Treatment, Residential and In-Home therapists. Collectively, our therapists felt that the training was the perfect balance of theory, skill modeling and skill practice. Most of our clinical staff wished they could have extended the training for additional days because they felt they were learning so much. Lisa was a dynamic speaker with an expertise that fit perfectly with our client population of children and adolescents who have experienced abuse and neglect. Our therapists felt more confident and competent in play therapy after only two days of training with Lisa.”
