Post on board
Phyllis Post, Ph.D., professor and doctoral program coordinator at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, was elected to the national board of directors of the Association for Play Therapy (APT) on June 20.
Post, a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and registered play therapist (RPT), previously chaired the APT research committee and served on the editorial board of the peer-reviewed International Journal of Play Therapy.
She serves on the APT credentialing and continuing education committee and the board of its North Carolina branch. She founded and continues to coordinate the UCC play therapy program.
Play therapy is a form of mental health counseling by which licensed mental health professionals incorporate play to better communicate with and help clients achieve optimal mental health. It is particularly effective with children because, just as adults use words to communicate ideas and feelings, children use play.
APT is a national professional society formed in 1982 to advance the field of play therapy. Additional information is available at www.a4pt.org.
