Program Narrative
Sandplay is an approach to clinical work that engages deeply with the conscious and unconscious aspects of psychological experience.  Based on a foundation of Jungian psychological principles, Sandplay is inherently inclusive of various cultural perspectives.  The modality of Sandplay is applicable to a wide variety of clinical situations, settings, and clinical presentations.  It can be used with all ages of clientele, incorporated as a play therapy technique with children or as an extension of a creative therapeutic process with adolescents and adults.  As an aspect of the Sandplay process, the sandtray itself can be used in a variety of ways and incorporated into nearly any theoretical approach to psychotherapy.  This introductory workshop will expand on each of these themes, with the intention to spark interest in the creative application of this approach.  Clinical case examples and accompanying photographs of actual sandtray creations will be used to demonstrate the use of this therapeutic modality.

Learning Objectives
1) Describe the theoretical underpinnings of Sandplay, and specifically the influence of Jungian psychology in Sandplay.

2) Identify the necessary materials for creating a Sandplay area in various treatment settings.

3) Identify personal biases toward and subjective perceptions of clients' Sandplay creations, through active self-reflection.

4) Identify at least four specific applications of sandtray techniques in clinical practice.

6) Identify three ways in which Sandplay is like and three ways in which Sandplay differs from other forms of play therapy.
