Msc in Play Therapy

With Kids in collaboration with Queen Margaret University are offering an Msc in Play Therapy. Play Therapy is a recognised means of helping children express their feelings and deal with emotional problems, using play as the main communication tool. This psycho-dynamic part-time 3 year course runs one day a week and prepares students for working in a variety of statutory, voluntary and private sectors as a Play Therapist.
