Get industry experience with 60 hours of clinical placement, and learn alongside pioneering academics in Australian child play therapy research.Want valuable new skills that allow you to pursue more rewarding work with children and their families?Even adults with years of life experience can find it hard to work through difficult feelings associated with mental health, trauma, self-esteem and relationships. When it comes to children, especially those without well-developed coping skills, these feelings can lead to problematic behaviour. Play therapy is increasingly being used as a way of helping children overcome these issues and make sense of their experiences. The beauty of play therapy is its simplicity. It allows children to express themselves through a comforting and familiar medium.
To complete the Graduate Diploma of Therapeutic Child Play students must attain 8 credit points. All 8 of these units are core within the Graduate Diploma (these are compulsory).
