Sand Tray Therapy
Survivor Activity

Every person has a survivor within themselves, especially people who have dealt with trauma. The sand tray therapy is the perfect tool for working with trauma survivors.

In this powerful sand tray therapy activity it is helpful to get clients thinking about the part of themselves called the survivor.

This powerful part is actually the “superhero” of the ego and needs to be celebrated.

In this exercise the client will identify their inner survivor and link support systems that enabled the survivor to survive and thrive.

Materials Needed:

Worksheet Above

Miniatures or Clip Art Cutouts

Directions:

1. Ask your sand tray therapy client to identify their inner survivor by finding a miniature or clip art photo that represents it.

2.Put the inner survivor miniature in the center of the web.

3.Identify a resource or support system that has enabled the inner survivor to survive in life.

The sand tray therapy client may want to identify resources, support systems, or people in their childhood that helped the inner survivor exist and possibly thrive.

Put these miniatures in the circles surrounding the survivor.

4.Extend the sand tray therapy activity project by brainstorming other resources that the client has yet to consider that can further assist the survivor and allow the survivor to thrive.

*This sand tray therapy activity will allow the sand tray therapy client to see that they have had support throughout their life and may be missing other opportunities for support.

It may also help the sand tray therapy client realize that they are stronger than they think they are. They can tap into their inner survivor during times of stress to build self-confidence and self-esteem.
