Therapeutic Play Skills (APAC)

Teaching & Learning

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

Gain a sound working knowledge of child protection issues and add to your repertoire of therapeutic play media by including art, therapeutic story telling, movement, clay and sand therapy.
Add to your repertoire of play therapy tools and conditions, and study the main research methods that are applicable to play therapy and the fundamentals of neurobiology showing the beneficial effects of play.
