Sand-Tray Therapy

Sand tray is a recognized therapeutic modality for both children and adults (Kalff, 1996). Sand tray work is useful for identifying and reconciling internal conflicts that manifest as anxiety and depression. An unconscious problem is played out in the sand tray. It provides a way for material from the unconscious to become visible, healed, and integrated into the consciousness, thus allowing life to be lived in a more conscious and authentic way.
