Healing Complex Trauma with Sandplay 

This training takes place in a lovely garden setting, with ample room for expressive arts activities in a nurturing environment in Northern California Wine Country, in the charming Sonoma County town of Petaluma. Venture a few blocks to historic downtown Petaluma and discover riverfront cafes, restaurants and shopping.
We meet from 9am to 6pm each day, Monday through Friday.

Week One of the Week-long Experiential Trainings in Sandplay Therapy (40 hours) covers some of the basic educational requirements as determined by Sandplay Therapists of America and the International Society of Sandplay Therapists. This training includes: Fundamentals of Sandplay (18 hours), Clinical Sandplay I (12 hours) and Symbolism (10 hours). 

Week Two is an extension of the first week-long training, but may also be attended by those who do not attend Week One. In the second week, we will explore using sandplay to heal complex trauma, and the concept of the four archetypal relational fields from Sandplay and the Clinical Relationship (Cunningham, 2013). 
We will integrate our understandings of neuroscience, trauma and body-based theories, Jungian theory and psychoanalysis with sandplay theory and practice.  This training includes: Clinical Sandplay (24 hours), Symbolism in Sandplay (10 hours), Jungian Theory in Sandplay (6 Hours).
