HKSTA Study Group December 2019

In December’s study group, Ruby Mui will lead us to study a book chapter from how Sandplay heals trauma from a neuropsychological perspective, wrote by L Freedle. The non-verbal, depth oriented, and multi-sensory nature of Sandplay Therapy serves safe and direct access to trauma and an experiential means to work through it. Through sand touching and moving, free playing, symbolizing and self reflection in the presence of an attuned therapist, multiple brain systems are activated for healing and transformation. Four features of Sandplay therapy that support neural integration are reviewed, they are relational safety, somatosensory engagement, symbolic expression of the trauma narrative, and mindful participation. The author of the book chapter also presented her case to illustrate the concepts. The study group will be run in Cantonese.
