About Sandplay

Sandplay is a nonverbal therapeutic technique developed by Dora M. Kalff based on Jungian psychology. In the use of sand, water and miniatures, clients create sand images within a “free and protected space” of the therapeutic relationship and the sand tray. A series of sandplay images portrayed in the sand tray create an ongoing dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious aspects of the client’s psyche, which activates a healing process and the development of the personality. Sandplay therapy has been used in individual work with both children and adults. (adapted from ISST definition)
