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.
