The therapeutic sandbox is successfully used in psychological and psychotherapeutic work with chil-dren and adults, as well as in psychological and pedagogical practice.
The purpose of this course is to form students' understanding of psychological counseling by the means of the sand therapy method for children and adults.
The course program is aimed at introducing students to various aspects of the use of the therapeutic sandbox in their practice, as well as giving them their own client experience and helping them reflect on it. Students will be able to evaluate the therapeutic advantages of the "sand play", and learn how to include sand therapy in their professional psychological practice.
Participants of the seminar will learn about main characteristics of sand paintings in order to better understand it. The relationship between sand therapy and fairy tale therapy will be made clear, which will allow students to appreciate the potential of this therapeutic union. A real individual therapeutic workshop will help participants try on a role of a client and understand how the sand therapy session is experienced by adult clients and children. Participation in demonstration sessions gives students a chance to see firsthand the "spectacle of their inner life" – and at the same time, helps to discover their own resources, expand their professional capabilities and believe in themselves.
During the training, students will learn:
  • what makes working with sand different from other types of therapeutic practice;
  • which typical psychological difficulties and problems are found in adult clients and children, and how this is reflected in the sand play with them;
  • what exactly the therapeutic sandbox does and how it helps the client and the psychologist;
  • what procedures and elements of fairy tale therapy are appropriate during sand play with different clients;
  • when and why use the therapeutic sandbox in the practice with adults and children.
