No – we are entirely online. You can access our information from your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. You will not get snail-mail sent to your school or home address.
Why should I join? Can't I just obtain play therapy interventions through Google and Pinterest? What Benefits does the Hub offer?
In today’s world of technology, it’s easy to share. Similar sites are great resources for interventions. In our experience, members will also want to join the Hub for the courses, question & answer calls and supervision/consultation – basically to increase knowledge in Play Therapy. However, once members are within the community, they enjoy being connected to a community of other school based professionals who have similar experiences, whether that’s participating in the forums or the monthly contests. Members find it helpful to be around others who can provide a sounding board as well as having a Registered Play Therapist – Supervisor to be available if they need support.

So if you decide to cancel, obviously, we will be disappointed, but we won’t stop you. If you decide to cancel your membership, members are able to do so with just a few clicks of the mouse.
