What is Sand Tray Therapy?

In a tray of sand, client's move or form the sand, and miniature objects to create a scene. This interaction utilizes client's senses: touch, sight, sound, and smell; thus bringing to life physical forms, which bring out his/her innermost conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings.Through the use of active imagination and creativity sand play is a powerful experiential tool that can bring together the mental, spiritual, and communicate nonverbal to verbal. The scenes produce what is sometimes difficult for a client to verbalize otherwise. In addition, it has a profound ability to have client's look at a situation or thought in a different light.

Who can benefit from this Sand Tray therapeutic modality?
Sand play is beneficial for children, and is equally therapeutic for adolescents, and adults: Individuals, couples, and families. All that is required is openness, willingness and honesty, which is the same exact elements that make for positive change in any form of therapy.
