    This study group is for members of Houston Group Psychotherapy Society (HGPS) and the Sam Houston Chapter of the Texas Association for Play Therapy (Sam Houston Chapter). Through a process of sharing our work and  literature (e.g., Play Therapy by Garry Landreth, Handbook of Child and Adolescent Groups Therapy edited by C. Haen and S. Aronson), we can become more knowledgeable and skilled therapists. We have much to learn from each other regarding the challenging, exciting, and  rewarding therapeutic work with children.

    Attendance is free.

    To receive CEUs, there is a CE Fee of $60 for 6 CE credits for Social Work, Psychology, LPC, and LMFT (1.5 CE credits per session).

    *Registration is required. For Sam Houston Chapter members, please email admin@hgps.org to complete your registration.
