Promoting Healthy Children and Families in Alaska

Welcome to the Alaska Association for Play Therapy!


The Alaska Association for Play Therapy is a non-profit Board whose mission is to provide best practice training and resources for play therapists across the state of Alaska.  We hope to provide networking opportunities amongst play therapists and share our expertise with other professionals in our community.


Play therapy uses a child's natural language of play to express themselves.  Toys and a trained play therapist can help children, teens, and adults to use metaphor to share memories and experiences that may be difficult. They provide distance and fun while processing.
