Information on hybrid and online trainings – offered if Covid-19 Restrictions are in place

All Theraplay trainings for 2022 are being offered as ‘in-person’ training courses. This is the preferred method for course delivery in the UK, due to the nature of Theraplay.

In-person trainings are 4 days for Level 1, 5 Days for Level 1 with Group Theraplay,  2 Days for Group Theraplay as a standalone course, and 3 Days for Level 2.

All current planned trainings for 2022 will indicate the intended mode of delivery will be in-person. In these cases Theraplay UK training partners will monitor local and national guidelines to determine whether this will be possible. Training Partners will then make the decision whether to continue as a hybrid training or reschedule and prospective participants will be contacted directly by them.

If, due to Covid-19 restrictions, trainings cannot be run in-person, they can be offered in a variety of formats depending on local or national risk assessments and guidance that Training Partners will adhere to. These are:

Hybrid trainings for Level 1. The first part of these courses (4 short days) are delivered online with a follow-up in-person full-day, once government legislation allows.

Hybrid trainings for Level 1 plus Group. The first part of these courses (4 short days) are delivered online with two follow-up in-person full days, once government legislation allows.

Hybrid trainings for Group Theraplay. Day 1 is delivered as a full-day online and Day 2 is delivered as a full day in-person, once government legislation allows.

Online trainings for Level 2. These 3 day trainings work well within an online environment because of the amount of shared video supervision that occurs.
