Play Therapy Canada
Competency Categories and Profiles
The Professional Structure Model (PSM) contains a database of competencies, which is maintained by Play Therapy International (PTI) in collaboration with its affiliated member organisations including Play Therapy Ireland. The competencies are grouped in five categories - see below.
Competency profiles may be easily produced from it by selecting the appropriate competencies required for any post involving therapeutic work with children. For example the competencies required by a Learning Assistant using therapeutic play skills to develop emotional literacy will be different from a Nurse working in a children's hospital which will be different again from an experienced Play Therapist working with behaviour and mental health problems in a variety of settings.
PTC produces recommended competency profiles for its members upon request. These may then be used as a basis for producing job descriptions, person specifications and the design of training programmes. They may also be extended or amended to suit the organisation's specific requirements.
