Academy Overview


Established in 2004, APT sponsors its Leadership Academy to orient play therapists about leadership attributes, the Policy Governance© Model, and how APT conducts its daily business.

Classes commence in January, conclude in June, and are limited to 28 participants. The program consists of five mandatory assignments, including written responses and regular participation online.  We welcome the enrollment of APT member academics, practitioners, and students.


If enrolled in the Leadership Academy program, you will:

  1.  Learn about APT and how it conducts its daily business
  2.  Learn how to thoughtfully and effectively participate in an online group process
  3.  Learn about the Policy Governance© Model
  4.  Learn about leadership
Successful completion of the Leadership Academy program requires 100% participation in each and every assignment by the deadlines indicated. All deadlines are “hard deadlines” to ensure that each class progresses as a single unit.  Graduation is held during the APT Annual Conference each October.
