The APT E-Learning Center serves the needs of mental health professionals wishing more clinical play therapy information and/or more opportunities to earn non-contact continuing education credit.


** The APT E-Learning Center will be offline beginning Friday, July, 20, 2018 **

The APT website, Play Therapy Connection, and APT E-Learning Center will all undergo a much needed redesign in the coming months. Due to the large amount of stored data, the APT E-Learning Center will need some extra time and attention on our end during this process. We anticipate launching the new and improved E-Learning Center in mid-September.

Please make sure to complete and submit any tests you are working on within the E-Learning Center BEFORE July 20. We thank you in advance for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
