    Workshop Description

    In her article on the “Use of Toys in Child-Centered Play Therapy,” Dee Ray (2013) found that the sand box and sand tools were the most frequently selected items by children in a play therapy room. Children often look forward to sharing their experience of sandtray with their parents and siblings. How can you facilitate effectively a family’s experience in the sand? Come learn what is unique about working in the sand tray with children and their families. Refine your play therapy skills using Sandtray Worldplay, a technique developed by Gisela Schubach DeDomenico, PhD, RPT-S. Both directive and nondirective, experiential interventions will be practiced. Implementing deepening techniques as a sandtray facilitator/witness will be emphasized. Participants will have an opportunity to practice both individual building and witnessing in the morning and family sandtray techniques in the afternoon. Completion of an introductory level workshop in sand tray therapy is a prequisite for this class.
