Are you wanting to expand the skill set of the therapists at your organization?  Would you love to have your therapists feel more confident in the work they do? At the Play Therapy Institute of Colorado – Home of Synergetic Play Therapy, we spent years researching topics ranging from early childhood development and behavior to the most current brain and nervous system research. As well, we’ve run extensive, progressive trainings and have had a plethora of hands-on experience directly with children. Through our Organizational Training program, we are eager to share our knowledge with you.

We are the real deal. In 2015, the Association for Play Therapy recognized us for, “outstanding professional education and training that significantly develops, promotes or advances the value of play, play therapy and credentialed play therapists,” by giving our founder, Lisa Dion (pictured), the “Professional Education and Training Award of Excellence.” We’re confident we can increase the knowledge and skills of the therapists or educators at your organization.

Our presentations are custom tailored for your organization and range from one-hour to multi-day trainings. To schedule a keynote presentations with PTIC founder Lisa Dion, LPC, RPT-S, please email us or call 720-548-9597.

“Lisa Dion came to Tennyson Center for Children and provided a comprehensive, two-day training for more than 20 of our Day Treatment, Residential and In-Home therapists. Collectively, our therapists felt that the training was the perfect balance of theory, skill modeling and skill practice. Most of our clinical staff wished they could have extended the training for additional days because they felt they were learning so much. Lisa was a dynamic speaker with an expertise that fit perfectly with our client population of children and adolescents who have experienced abuse and neglect. Our therapists felt more confident and competent in play therapy after only two days of training with Lisa.”
