3 Modes of Study & Pricing

The Play of Life® Accreditation Program has been adapted from a 300-hour post-graduate course into a program divided into three levels:
Level 1 for individual use,
Level 2 for families and groups, and
Level 3 for advanced or specialised applications.

The program follows a flexible distance experiential education, providing participants with comprehensive training tailored to their specific needs and interests.

Each level encompasses the philosophy of the method and practical techniques. The philosophy primarily integrates psychodrama-sociometry and neuroscience, providing a solid theoretical and scientific foundation. The theory is then put into practice through strategically designed techniques and practical tools, totalling over 15 techniques that are immediately applicable.

The online course is regularly updated to enhance the student experience. It includes reading materials, videos, short quizzes to evaluate your knowledge of the theory, and practical self-evaluation logs to track your progress as you proceed. You can choose from three modes of study: Self-Guided, Group Training, and 1-1 Training.

Once enrolled, you will gain access to the private Facebook group and our quarterly video conferences, featuring updates and case studies from Carlos, connecting the Play of Life global community. Upon receiving your certificate, you will be automatically added to our Global Practitioner Registry where you can offer your professional skills to people around the world.

Frequently asked questions

What is the Global Practitioner Registry (GPR)?

The Global Practitioner Registry (GPR) is a public directory of registered Play of Life accredited practitioners from around the world, managed by Active Learning International (ALI). The GPR was introduced in 2021 with the aim of achieving two main goals:
1. To enable practitioners to connect with their global community of practitioners who share their passion for helping people transform their lives and promote their services globally.
2. To enable seekers who are in search of support to access practitioners in their own country, language, and specialties that suit their needs. This facilitates easier access to mental health support services that offer an experiential and holistic approach.
By achieving these goals, the GPR serves as a valuable resource for both practitioners and seekers alike, promoting the spread of the Play of Life method and helping to improve mental health outcomes globally.

How the GPR works:

Once a practitioner completes a level of accreditation and receives certification from ALI, they are automatically added to the GPR with the corresponding accreditation level stamped on their profile. Practitioners have the option to choose the visibility of their profile: private, visible to other practitioners, or public. By making their profile public, practitioners can make themselves available to seekers looking for mental health support services.   Practitioners can then enhance their profile by adding information about themselves, such as their certifications, expertise, location, languages, availability, and other tools and methods in their toolkit. They can also describe how they incorporate the Play of Life method in their practice.   The GPR thus serves as a platform that enables seekers to find practitioners who match their needs and preferences.
