Introduction and Children's SandplayChildren’s emotions are very deep, yet often feel they are not heard for they cannot easily articulate or even understand their own feelings. They need a way to do this, and Sandplay provides it.
Imagine stepping into a child’s world of imagination, fairy-tales, nightmares, family breakup, difficulties at school such as bullying, low self-esteem, etc. This is what Sandplay allows you to do. It gives you, the facilitator, the privilege to witness the innermost core of a child’s psyche, clearly laid out in the sand tray.
Witness their stories like never before. You will see their dreams, hurts, fears, worries and struggles. You will also witness their resilience as they grow. Sandplay allows the child an expression of themselves that goes beyond language. It allows the child to express the reality of their world, to change and find their own solutions.
This three-day course will provide you with all the necessary skills to work with children using Sandplay. It also covers the preparatory work for working with adolescents and adults. This course is experiential and you will as a participant experience the power of Sandplay.
