PSA Accreditation Renewal

December 21, 2015

I am incredibly proud to announce that we have been successful in achieving re-accreditation with the Professional Standards Authority this year. The cherry on the top of this particularly tasty news was that we achieved this without any conditions or learning points. In other words, we aced it.

This was not without significant effort and work from our ‘working group’ and I would like to extend thanks to Janet Steel, Judith James, Harriet Armstrong, Andrew O’Mahony, Audrey Lee and Linda St Louis particularly. We really couldn’t have done this without you.

I also want to thank all our members for their ongoing belief and support in BAPT, we really couldn’t have done it without you either!

The Professional Standards Authority have produced a promotional video called ‘Let’s Work Together’ which is now available to use and publish to promote the PSA and our register. The video makes direct reference to Play Therapy as a profession and could be very helpful in demonstrating the quality assurance that being on an accredited register brings. Please feel free to spread the word. Click below for the link:

Season’s Greetings everyone!
