​Introduction to Sandtray Therapy

About the Training
Sandtray play therapy is an evidence based expressive therapy that is often utilized for individuals who have experienced trauma or attachment injuries. While this is the most common use for sandtray play therapy, it is not limited to these presenting problems. Sandtray play therapy has been shown to be an effective way to encourage non-verbal communication when the client is has difficulty expressing their concerns. 
Using sandtray appropriately, is an effective tool for any therapist. However, for the play therapist, it can be an essential, and powerful addition to their treatment repertoire. 
This training is for psychologists, social workers, counselors, school counselors, psychiatrists, family therapists, and other experienced professionals who work with children and families.
