    hi Dr. Mullen,
    Sorry to bother you.
    I am in Australia and you were highly recommended in this area of Play Therapy.
    I am a primary school teacher and would love to work in this area but have not seen or done any training as yet.
    I will be visiting my son in Brooklyn June 5-July 15th soon and am wondering if there are any course or training I can involve myself with whilst there.i believe the US is the most known for this specialized field.
    Even a day would be great to come and view some therapy -I’d greatly appreciate any suggestions.
    Many thanks
