Continuing Education For Counselors

Continuing Education Units - Play Therapy

AAPT offers CE Credits for counselors and social workers via workshops and seminars conducted throughout the year.

What Is Continuing Education?

CE hours (Continuing Education hours) are normally sought after by those who have already acquired a college education but want to continue learning about subjects in their desired field or obtain more information on subjects outside their developed knowledge base.

Continuing education is offered as non-credit programs, but continuing education hours acquired through continuing education workshops, seminars, self-study courses, or tutorials provide proof of completed evaluations, assessments and exercises.
