Hey there MIAPT Members!
Who’s ready for SUMMER?!?!
I AM! I’m ready for time at the pool and beach, and more time playing outside and with friends and family. However you choose to spend time this summer, I hope you get lots of chances to do things that make your mind, heart, and soul happy!
I’m mindful that many of you may have mixed feelings as we move into summertime. The COVID storm seems to be calming, but it is not yet over. And, like the saying goes - we’re all in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Some never left the office, some still haven’t returned. Some are vaccinated, some aren’t. Some are masked, some aren’t. As we continue to move forward let’s hold space for everyone during this time of change and transition. Let’s be models of open-minded connectedness for our clients, their families, our peers, and our communities.

P.S. I would love to see greater involvement from our amazing membership. There are opportunities to serve on committees, run or attend regional networking meetings, attend MIAPT’s virtual and in-person trainings, write articles for our newsletter, set up outreach opportunities to spread the word about APT/MIAPT, and attend member only virtual support meetings. As members you each make up this play therapy community, so make your voice heard! If you have any questions about taking part in any of these opportunities, just let me know!
