Sand Tray Analysis for Sand Tray Therapy Class
by: 10804025

This sand tray therapy garden is very lively and colorful with lots of positive energies. The orange, blue and green color scheme is very striking and can be seen throughout the tray. The positioning of the beach chairs, umbrella, and bright orange frog on one end of the tray, and the other animals on the other end of the tray may denote the creator’s need for companionship even when relaxing alone, this is particularly obvious with the two beach chairs and the frog. The creator may prefer to relax with someone who she has a meaningful relationship with, rather than alone. Relationships appear to be important to the creator. This is particularly meaningful with the orange tone of the tray; orange color may connote social communication and optimism. The frog may symbolize the soul of the owner, this may explain why it is placed near the beach chairs and is brightly colored and may be an expression of this persons feeling of happiness at the beach. In fairy tales, the kissed frog turns into a prince, denoting transformation, good fortune and companionship. The turtle in the water may denote that the time at the beach is a time away from facing responsibilities and a time to enter into a world of fantasy where the creator is the princess.
