Diplomate Level (EPT/D)
The purpose of the Diplomate level is to expand one’s knowledge of EPT. The diplomate has completed all the Supervisor level requirements and has co-facilitated an intensive training session in EPT with a Diplomate. The person has presented a juried presentation on an aspect of EPT as a function of the play therapy process, or published an article on some aspect of EPT. This person is endorsed to provide continuing education from the EPT perspective. In order to maintain the EPT/D designation, this professional is required to present or co-present one juried or one pre-approved presentation, or one published work every three years. (An EPT/S or EPT/D teaching a graduate level course in play therapy may count as one presentation as long as EPT is given equal presentation time as other major theories). In order to maintain their EPT/D designation, this person is required to maintain their EPT/S status and to earn six hours of appropriate continuing education every three years. The continuing education has to be provided by an EPT Supervisor or Diplomate and Experiential Play Therapy is the basic premise of the content.
