With this play therapy activity I got to be the volunteer in class for Dr. Stangline to counsel me on my sand tray. I have to say that I got more help from doing the sand tray then I have gotten with my other talk therapy.

I have been sexually, physically, and emotionally abused as a child and the abuse came out in my sand tray thrapy. She had me move the miniatures around as to put the abuse in the back and move my inner child away from the abuser, and protect her with all the things I enjoy and the things that make me feel safe. When I did that I physically felt relief. It was absolutely amazing.

When I got home and did another sand tray therapy tray I made a safe place at the beach with my family and had a lot of protection behind it. I have a lot of issues with feeling safe and trusting people. I know that is what my sand tray was showing. This activity was wonderful and I am planning on taking the sand tray class this summer. I want to learn more about it. It is something that I can see me using in my future counseling experiences.
