What Will You Learn?

The Sand Tray Therapy Diploma Course provides a digestible, yet in-depth, explanation and analysis of this innovative, fun, and effective form of psychotherapy. You’ll learn about its origins, who can use it, how it works, the issues it can support, techniques it can be used alongside, its limitations, how a sand tray session is prepared and conducted, and the studies that prove its effectiveness.

Discover the origins of sand tray therapy, including its founders and the framework it’s based upon, how it works and the differences between sand tray therapy and sandplay. Explore the World Technique and how it’s used in sand tray therapy, and what humanistic psychology is.

Understand the beneficial application of sand tray therapy in adults, specifically couples and those with trauma, children (toddlers, young children, and adolescents), and families. We’ll also examine how sand tray therapy can be beneficial in reducing mental health issues, building coping mechanisms, assisting with recovery and aiding day-to-day life.

The course explores other techniques and holistic mental health approaches that can be incorporated into someone’s life alongside sand tray therapy, along with examining the limitations of the therapy.

You’ll be guided through how a typical sand tray session is prepared and conducted, including how the session changes upon the completion of the client’s ‘world’.

Finally, we’ll examine several studies, covering a variety of scenarios, that explore the effectiveness of sand tray therapy.
