Sand Therapy Competencies: Principles & Practices for Play Therapists and Colleagues

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 712

Sand therapy is a three-dimensional projective technique used with people of all ages. It is often also practiced by expressive arts and play therapists. For clinicians, it is especially important to be attuned to the psychic impact of the symbolic process inherent in sand therapy work. Understanding the various contexts and meanings that occur in sand scenes is also critical, helping therapists to grasp the essence of their clients' processes. Of course, clinician projections must be managed and also addressed. In this daylong Master Class, the speaker will provide an overview of the core principles and practices for the safe, ethical, and empowering use of sand in the clinical setting. Relevant research and case examples will be offered and complemented by an experiential component during which registrants can work with peers to explore the core principles and practices that will be featured.
