In order to meet CACPT Supervisor Certification Guidelines, attendees, (in addition to attending this course), will need to obtain 10 hours of direct supervision on the clinical supervisory process. Attendees will be directed to a CACPT Certified Play Therapy Supervisor (CPT-S) that is available to provide this supervision via Skype or face-to-face supervision. It is up to the CPT-S and potential CPT-S to create their own supervisory contract and arrange on session tapes will be reviewed.

Trainees will participate in lecture and activity based learning. Given Supervisors also take on a teaching role with supervisees; all Supervisor trainees will present a fifteen-minute theory review as part of sharing their Supervisory Portfolio during Sessions 5-7. Their topic will be assigned to them Week 1 based on a chapter in one of the two identified text-books. In addition to purchasing the textbooks, participants require reliable internet, a computer and sound cancelling microphone (Mute mechanism).
