Play Safe!

Safety issues - physical, emotional and confidentiality are especially crucial for children. For the safety of the child a play/creative arts therapist or therapeutic play practitioner must:

Have an up-to-date, clear CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) Check

Be a currently Certified or Accredited Member of PTA

Be receiving clinical supervision of their play therapy practice - the therapist’s work is reviewed regularly by someone who has considerable experience

Conduct the sessions in a safe environment

Work within PTA's ethical framework or an equivalent

Have adequate professional indemnity and public liability insurance
Be using clinical governance (quality control) procedures

Ask the therapist for evidence of each of these points to ensure that the child is safe.
