Play therapists, on obtaining their license after years of rigorous studying and meeting the requirements set by the state, can practice in various environments, such as schools, hospitals, mental health institutes, or their own private practice. Therefore, play therapists can be classified as Registered Play Therapist-Supervisors (RPT-S), School Based-Registered Play Therapists (SB-RPT) or Registered Play Therapists (RPT). Licenses expire every 3 years, in which case professionals are required to complete play therapist CEUs to renew their license. Play Therapist CEUs, in addition to being a necessity for license renewal, are also a valuable tool for in-depth learning, career enhancement, and the increase in job opportunities that they provide. CEU hours can be completed through participation in various seminars, workshops, webinars, community service, research and teaching, as well as through self-instruction (only up to the allowed hours). Additionally, they can be completed online, helping overcome the challenges of time constraints, work schedules and location. Therapists are given a considerable amount of time to complete their play therapist CEUs (this number varies by state; for example, New York CE requirements can be met over 3 years). However, only activities conducted by approved providers in the specified areas will count towards the completion of play therapist CEUs.CE State Info
