Certification in Other Therapies – Where to Go?

This is a topic I struggle with in a huge way…  There are SO many places recreation professionals can obtain certification in what I will refer to as Other Therapies (aka Specialities).  So why is this a problem?  I mean, who complains about a lot of opportunities?  I do.  The girl who easily becomes distracted online and follows the silver ball across the internet.  Because of the abundance of opportunities, how do we guarantee that the ones we register for will be recognized by our professional associations?  How do we ensure our investments will serve us well?

What do I want to do?  Add a section to the resource page that is dedicated to reputable and recognized certifying bodies.  What am I looking for from you?  Help me populate my list of ‘Other Therapies’ as well as where to become certified.  Reply below or send me a message!
