Day 3. Clinical skills set – Sandplay through therapist-client interaction

Clinical skill sets is an important part of holding the client into the heart of the journey. Through witnessing Sandplay trays, students will strengthen the understanding of the ‘open and protected’ space of solid and healthy containment; appropriating an experience of strong feelings and thoughts that perhaps, were hidden away.

Course Objectives

  • Define trauma and its effect in the mind, body, and soul through the sand.
  • Understanding personality development and the archetype of the mother-child relationship.
  • Identify wounding in the sandplay.
