Introduction to Sandplay Therapy’s history and development, its theoretical foundations and key practice elements (introduction to clients, building a collection, documentation, record-keeping, therapist observations). The Jungian lexicon will be introduced and the nexus of conscious and unconscious processes outlined. The role of symbols in psychotherapy and sandplay, and the essential elements of a sandplay ‘process’, including differentiation of Sandplay and Sand Tray therapy and other treatment modalities will be presented. Integration of Sandplay with other therapies and treatment modalities will be demonstrated.
Clinical consideration of attachment and trauma issues and the Sandplay process will be outlined, supported by recent and relevant neuroscience findings.

CG Jung stated ‘in myths and fairy tales, as in dreams, the psyche tells its own story.’ Fairy tales offer psychological insights for adults and children facing the complexities of life, the challenges of individuation, and healing.
This module will enhance the Sandplay Therapist’s knowledge of the ways clients may be using fairy tale motifs and symbols both consciously and unconsciously. Psychological interpretations of traditional fairy tales will be amplified through focussing on the archetypes in specific tales.
Participants will develop their familiarity with fairy motifs and symbols in their own sandplay collections.
In this module Jungian Analyst Sarah Gibson will focus on the symbolic use of HANDS in Sandplay Therapy and Fairy Tales.
