2023 CAPT Annual General Meeting & Conference
All certified and PTI members, including CPT and CPT-S, are required to complete 12 hours of continuing education each 1 year period following the certification year for Certified Members and following the completion of the CAPT Foundation Play Therapy credits for PTI members.
CAPT is rolling out the red carpet to honour members and supporters after a long hiatus apart! It is a reunion of sorts where colleagues will reunite and new members will gather to meet with new friends on May 5 & 6, 2023.
The intention is to offer this opportunity in this amazing retreat and the natural setting of Niagara Falls, ON to celebrate the future of play therapy in Canada! It is also a time to reunite with colleagues from across the country who are unable to make the trip to Niagara Falls.
This year’s national training event will be held in person face to face as well as in an on-line format for those in more remote regions who will be unable to make the commute to Niagara Falls. The in-person opportunity will offer a Friday night reception followed by the CAPT Annual General Meeting where members will gather to learn more about the future of CAPT in Canada, the successes that have been experienced over the past year and to hear your ideas on CAPT’s next steps.
To support our play therapy members and recognizing the extreme challenges faced by all mental health professionals in Canada, we are offering learning opportunities presented by those well known in Canada for their professional expertise.

Keep doing your own inner work. The healing enriches you and your practice.
