Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay therapy is a psychotherapeutic tool used with children and adults. The method consists of the client’s creation of a three-dimensional picture with miniature figures in a tray of sand in the protective presence of a trained practitioner.

Sandplay as taught and practiced by the STA was developed by the late Jungian therapist, Dora M. Kalff, of Switzerland for use with children in Jungian therapy.
