How an Adolescent Used Sandplay Therapy / Sand Tray Therapy for Healing Student #4 Summer 2013

by Sand Tray Therapy Student
(Sandy Springs)

In How an Adolescent Used Sandtray therapy / Sand play Therapy for Healing, Jill Weadick discusses a tray of one of her clients. The client entered therapy due to depression and self injurious behavior. The client was very shy at first about engaging in the sand tray, because he/she felt like it was stupid. The client ended up creating a world despite her vocal resistance. In the tray there are two dragons on opposite sides of the tray. The client also used horses and zebras, as well as a wolf, a buffalo, and a moose. The wolf is the favorite part of the world. The center of the tray utilizes a lot of empty space. The tray for the client represents her family life. She represented herself through the dragon, and she feels as though she is somewhat wild and trapped, ands needing to release this wildness.

This sand tray training video was somewhat helpful because it tells what resulted from a session. It would have been nice to see the session in the first person, as it really would have captured the emotions. Due to privacy issues, it makes sense as to why it was done this way, and because of this, it is as beneficial as it can be.
