An Introduction with Experiential Practice
This seminar will discuss the foundations of Jungian Sandplay as created by Dora Kalff. Based in play therapy, Dora Kalff created a method whereby children are allowed to build their worlds in a free and protected space created by the therapist. Topics introduced in this seminar will include a brief background in Jungian theory as it applies to Sandplay, creating a free and protected space, ethics, symbol, the use of Sandplay in your clinic. Participants will be able to begin understanding what trays teach us in this course. The presentation and significance of first trays in a series will be the focus. This is a unique and enticing presentation for all participants, regardless of previous exposure to Sandplay.
