THE DEVELOPMENT OF MASCULINE POWER IN SANDPLAY

Journal of Sandplay Therapy, Volume 2, Number 2, 1993

KEY WORDS: masculine, sandplay therapy, clinical example, man, depression,  containment, man.

ABSTRACT: This case study describes a 23-year-old man, suffering with depression. He is unable to verbalize his thoughts or  feelings. Through 12 sandtrays, the process shows the emerging feminine, the  balance of the masculine and feminine and the developing androgyny of the  energy. Significant miniatures are used. The snake holds renewal and healing;  the frog rebirth and the dark life; and the tree, the earth/sky connection. The Russian stone woman and old man, hold the polarity of the balancing opposites.  The work of the sandplayer with the witness in the therapist, along with the  work of his male analyst, provided the containment for this individual to find  renewed health.
