Consultation for Certification

These consultation sessions are designed to help increase your ability to deliver quality Adlerian play therapy to your clients. Your Approved Adlerian Play Therapy Consultant will use the skills checklists to help you make sure you are actually doing Adlerian play therapy and doing it well.


A minimum of 10 hours of consultation with an Approved Adlerian Play Therapy Consultant is required for Certification in Adlerian Play Therapy.  This sign-up fee covers the cost of the 10th consultation; the fee for the other 9 (or more) consultations is paid directly to the Consultant. 

  • In 7 of these sessions, you will provide a video recording of a session demonstrating Adlerian play therapy, with–
    • one session focusing on a recording that illustrates Phase 1,
    • one session focusing on a recording that illustrates Phase 2,
    • two recordings for Phase 3 and Phase 4 of Adlerian play therapy,
    • and one recording of parent or teacher consultation.
  • In the other 3 consultation sessions, you will work on perfecting conceptualization and treatment planning for clients from an Adlerian perspective.

At the end of this series of consultation sessions, the consultant, using the rubric of the Adlerian play therapy checklist from the Adlerian Play Therapy Treatment Manual, can recommend that you proceed to the final step in becoming a certified Adlerian play therapist—the certification evaluation. At this time, if the consultant believes you are not quite ready to do the certification evaluation, the consultant can also suggest that more consultation sessions are necessary. The purpose of additional consultation sessions would be to ensure that you have fully mastered the Adlerian play therapy and parent/teacher consultation skills and strategies and can demonstrate expertise in using Adlerian play therapy conceptualizing and treatment planning tools.
