Play therapy training clinics are an important aspect of the clinical mental health field. An approved play therapy training center should offer direct play therapy services to children and families and provide quality education, training, research, and supervision. While each setting may have a set of contractual standards for supervision, few offer advice for setting up such approved centers and training clinics.

Developing and Sustaining Play Therapy Clinics is a collection of innovative research on policies and procedures for university-based play therapy clinical settings to help guide practitioners in multiple areas including emergency and crisis situations, paperwork requirements, and mandated reporting requirements. While highlighting topics including adventure therapy, clinic branding, and playroom design, this book is ideally designed for clinic directors, psychologists, psychiatrists, play therapy practitioners, academics, administrative supervisors, and researchers.
