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 typically commence in January and conclude in June. The program consists of five mandatory assignments, including written responses and participation online.  

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.


We welcome the enrollment of member and non-member mental health academics, practitioners, and students.
