The British Association of Play Therapists (BAPT) was set up in 1992 to draw up codes of practice and conduct for play therapists and employers, to establish a register of play therapists and to regulate play therapy training.
This section provides information about:
the British Register of Play Therapists with details of who is registered and other important information;
Regulating practice and conduct is a key element to the work of the British Association of Play Therapists (BAPT).
Registered play therapists agree to abide by the Ethical Basis for Good Practice in Play Therapy as a condition of their registration. The Ethical Basis for Good Practice in Play Therapy is the benchmark of good practice for all registered play therapists. Play therapists who breach the codes of practice could be removed from the register through the complaints procedure.
