AbstractThis article presents the results from research on community-engaged curricula
using feedback from international and South African academics who teach on
postgraduate programmes with a community engagement component. It also
includes the findings from a sample master’s programme in Play Therapy at
a South African university. The findings indicated that at least five important
issues are related to community-engaged master’s programmes in Play
Therapy, namely: programme relevance, integrated scholarship, community-based research, reciprocal learning, and close academic staff involvement.
Based on these findings a curriculum framework is suggested which caters for
an integrated scholarship approach in master’s programmes in Play Therapy
that closely engage with community needs. Such a framework may relate to
similar or other professional master’s programme curricula.
