Advancing the Therapeutic Powers of Play

The 2020 Annual Conference scheduled for May 1st and 2nd at Lake Morey Resort has been cancelled.

We are planning for a semi-virtual NEAPT conference in September or October 2020. While we do not have all of the details figured out quite yet, here’s the basic idea:

  • We are looking for members in each state to volunteer to host a group as a satellite location for the 2020 conference.
  • Participants will gather in small groups across the states, and presenters will use an online platform to live-stream their training to all of the states at once!
  • Trainings will be chosen from the program already approved for the spring conference. Unfortunately we will not be able to offer all of the programs in a shortened, virtual timeframe, but look forward to offering everything we miss at a future in-person conference.
  • Hosts will be able to help moderate discussions and questions between participants and presenters, as well as in the smaller groups.
  • We are continuing in discussions with the various groups about continuing education credits and whether this would count for in-person hours or not. As of right now, we WILL be able to offer contact hours for all of the major organizations through the Institute for Continuing Education with the exception of APT. We will offer non-contact hours through APT.
  • This will be a great way to encourage the local networking that everyone has been asking for during conferences!

I appreciate all of your support and look forward to being able to meet together as a large group. Please continue to take care of yourself and get these dates in your calendar! If you have a location to donate in which you can host 10 or so people, which has solid internet access, please let us know. Let’s put our creativity together and make this happen!!
