ABSTRACT: This author relates the similarities between Sandplay Therapy and Self Psychology, by comparing the work of Heinz Kohut, the father of Self Psychology and Dora Kalff, the mother of Sandplay Therapy. Both approaches speak to the importance of the therapist, client relationship, with empathy and mirroring. The relationship of the self-object is described in both therapies. A partial sandplay process is described from the two perspectives.
