We are going to have our next Study Group in May 28, 2015. We will have Journal Article Study and experiential exercise in Somatic Experience in Sandplay Therapy. In this article, the author advocates the cultivation of an embodied approach to sandplay therapy which requires the therapist’s self-awareness on his / her own bodily experience and at the same time is silently witnessing the client.
During the study group, we are going to look into the ways which the author suggests to develop the therapist’s kinesthetic empathy and somatic listening while witnessing the client’s work. More importantly, bodily awareness cannot be acquired through reading and talking, we are going to practice our mental focus through making our own sand trays and observing our members doing his/ her work.
