In our Resources section, you will find a listing of sources and materials that range from sandplay and Jungian literature, to practical items like sand and miniatures. These resources can further support the deep understanding of sandplay that we provide in our training programme through theoretical, clinical and experiential learning.
While reading the literature and developing a sandplay collection are important parts of offering sandplay to clients, we believe that completing these tasks is not sufficient to create competency and clinical expertise in the therapeutic benefits of sandplay therapy. Developing a professional practice in sandplay requires deep learning on the part of the therapist, including the rich components of our training programme: personal experience of sandplay, training, clinical supervision, learning to look at sandpictures, integration of learning, and collegial exchange.
