"I loved this training so much.... especially as there were so few slides and so much experiential work!"
Sandplay invites the symbolic creation and transformation of one's world. Building on your learning from our Symbols and Sandplay Training, learn and practice 5 different counselling methods to use with older children, adolescents and adults in sandplay.
This two day experiential workshop extends on your introduction from the Symbols and Sandplay Training to offer you a theory review, demonstration of and practice in 5 counselling methods suitable for a range of client presentations. In the free and protected space provided by the counsellor, after the client creates a concrete manifestation of his or her inner world using sand, water, and miniature objects, a range of interventions are available. Practice will be offered in and consideration given to the most appropriate methods to use given client age, presentation, context of therapy and time available.
This workshop will briefly revise the fundamental theoretical and methodological concepts in the practice of symbols and sandplay work. It will include an overview of the existing evidence base supporting it and a review of contemporary applications. The focus of the workshop will be an experiential and practical use of Person-Centered, Gestalt, Adlerian, Narrative and Action-Oriented methods for use in counselling.
