Play Therapist

Hi,

I'm thinking about training to become a play therapist. The usual question pops up with regards to Switzerland acknowledging qualifications (it is UK based but is classed as an international qualification). Secondly is there such a need here? I know in the UK the benefits of play therapy are widely acknowledged, but here? Who knows!

Does anyone have any insight into this?

Re: Play Therapist

The obvious question is whether you are fluent in any of the Swiss languages. If not, how are you going to effectively communicate with Swiss kids? Otherwise you would have to pitch exclusively to English speakers.

Sorry, I should have clarified. It would be exclusively for English speakers.

Try contacting the international schools here. If it's an internationally recognised qualification perhaps they will recognise it, although if kids here need any kind of therapy, it's usually available on the health insurance from external sources, rather than the school.

Re: Play Therapist

Had another thought - you could also try pre-school daycares. There are dozens of them either bi-lingual or just plain English speaking. Not particularly for "play therapy" but maybe they would be interested from an input point of view.

Re: Play Therapist

I expect you'd hit similar problems to what was pointed out in your other thread.

Still might be worth contacting this organisation to see what they have to say.
