A Message From Pam Dyson
Director of the St. Louis Center for Play Therapy Training
It is with mixed emotions that I need to announce that after April 30, 2014, The
St. Louis Center for Play Therapy Training will no longer be offering play therapy
seminars in the St. Louis region.
My husband's employer is relocating him to Dallas, Texas. I will be moving my
clinical practice to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and establishing a new play
therapy training center. I look forward to offering play therapy services and
training opportunities in a new location yet I will miss St. Louis and the network
of people I have connected with professionally over the course of my career as
a play therapist.
I will maintain a presence on social media platforms and hope you will continue
to connect with me there. I will also continue to be available to bring play
therapy training to agencies and conferences throughout the country.
I would like to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" to all of you who have
supported my efforts since 2010 in building the St. Louis Center for Play Therapy
Training. I feel blessed and fortunate to have met each of you and I hope you
were encouraged and supported both personally and professionally when you
attended one of our play therapy trainings.
