Welcome to the Missouri Association for Play Therapy!
The Missouri Association for Play Therapy (MAPT) has been organized as a state chapter of the national Association for Play Therapy (APT), a professional society formed in 1982 to foster contact among psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, and other mental health professionals interested in exploring and, when developmentally appropriate, applying the therapeutic power of play to communicate with and treat clients, particularly children.
In the five regions of Missouri that MAPT serves, regional representatives and a six-member board operate the organization, award scholarships, and staff workshops and area meetings throughout the year. The regional representatives and board are volunteers elected or appointed from the membership of the organization.
