Offered on-campus, the post-graduate certificate in Counseling Children and Adolescents (CCA) is developed for community professionals with a master’s degree in counseling or closely related area of clinical psychotherapy who meet the requirements for admission to the certificate program. The Regis University Center for Family Counseling and Play Therapy is a designated Approved Center of Play Therapy Education by the Association for Play Therapy (APT). Therefore students completing the CCA certificate program meet the academic requirements for the Registered Play Therapy (RPT) national certification through the APT. The certificate is a planned program of study which includes 18-credit hours (six courses). CCA certificate courses are offered in weekends and intensive formats so that students may accommodate work schedules and complete the coursework within one calendar year. Current graduate students in the Master of Arts in Counseling and Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy programs may also be admitted to the CCA certificate program concurrently during their master’s degree coursework. The CCA certificate cannot be awarded to current students until the semester following graduation from the master’s degree program and completion of the certificate coursework.
