Response / Translation to Sand Tray Therapy Play Therapy Tray
by: Student #5

The author is this tray did an excellent job allowing themselves to be vulnerable while processing and describing the tray. I was immediately drawn to the ambulance that appears to almost be crashed into the sand. Part of the ambulance is covered and part of it is not which seems to signify there are some deeply rooted issues that haven't been resolved. the dream moods dictionary describes an ambulance as an indication that "careless activities and indiscretion can lead to major problems and complications". The author described what the ambulance meant to her, but I also wonder if there could be some hidden fear about her own health issues.

Another interesting thing I noticed in the tray is that the police officer is outside of the boundary line. To me, this implies that the officer doesn't really have that much control. I would moreso see the officer inside of the line so that they could be the one to help shape this boundary into place and have something concrete and solid. I would want to ask the client if the police officer represented them or anyone else in their family, and then I would seek to clarify why boundary setting has been a problem for them. Further exploration into the client's thoughts of themselves could help shed light on that issue.
