About this Case Presentation

Sand Tray Therapy is a creative way of letting clients to express their worldview using images and stories in the sand. Sandtray therapy is both a non-directive and directive expressive approach for therapists to use with all clients. Clients can use words or be non-verbal to express their stories. Through creative expression, a person in therapy is able to manifest in sand the things they would otherwise not be able to vocalize or address in traditional therapy. The therapist treats the person as whole and healed, knowing that the process of sand tray therapy allows the person to find the answers that are already within them.
