The Sandplay Practitioner (SP) category of membership responds to an

recognition of partial fulfillment of the requirements to become a

Associate Volunteer Help Requested as STA Associates Committee Members.
We need members from three geographical areas: the East/South, the

of this vital link to the community of therapists who value and
practice sandplay. Contact Rosalind Heiko if you are
interested – we would be proud to have you on our team!
