Adult Therapy in the Sandtray Therapy Student #4

by Graduate Student
(Sandy Springs)

In Adult Therapy in the Sandtray Therapy, Jill Weadick talks about a session she engaged in with an adult client. The adult client was having difficulties in her marriage, and it came down to getting a divorce or sticking with the marriage. The client was asked to pick a miniature she feels a connection with that can represent her life. She chose a miniature representing two face, in which half the face is good looking, and half is ugly. For the client, this figure represents her husband, because she feels as though part of her husband is nice, and part is mean. The client proceeded to choose another miniature, a ballerina character. The doll represents the client, because she feels like a little girl, not knowing what to do in regards to the marriage.

Jill continues to discuss how the client has trust issues with her husband. She then asks the client to talk more about the doll miniature. The client turned the figure face down in the sand, because she feels stuck. In many aspects of her life, she feels stuck, and would really like to become unstuck.

I found this video helpful because it showed how a client who feels like so much is going wrong can look at the various aspects of their lives and see bit by bit why they feel things are not going right. I would hope that Jill would continue to explore these issues with the client, and really continue to make progress so the client can be more confidant and happy.
