For More Information Email

We also would like your input regarding the topics we select for future conferences and workshops.  Your input has helped in the past and we hope you will continue to give us some guidance as to the kinds of topics you would like us to emphasis when we plan coming events.  We have a questionnaire which we would like you to print, complete, and mail to us.  You can find the questionnaire by clicking here .  You may also find the questionnaire useful in formulating ideas that you would like to share with us via email.

Thank you for your interest!!  Your response is truly appreciated.  Please visit this page periodically as we expect to ask your input on other more specific topics also.  You may also think of questions we should ask.

Please do not be bashful!!!

This is our survey page.  We solicit your input and views.  Our effort here is a continuation of a practice that we began years ago at our play therapy events.
The board of GAPT believes that the success we have in promoting play therapy will be enhanced by the participation of all.  We want those who have an interest in play therapy to provide us with the benefit of their experience so that we can consider all possible ways to promote play therapy.
Currently our questionnaire is general and designed to allow you to explore your imagination and creativity.  Please be comfortable providing us all of your suggestions.  Complicated suggestions requiring an involved explanation are most welcome as well as simple ideas requiring only a short note.
