ABSTRACT: The author discusses the sandplay therapy process of a nine year old boy struggling with issues related to asthma and self-regulation. Presenting as oppositional, angry and suffocated, the client moves in his sandplay process between deintegration and integration as described by Michael Fordham, as he works to leave the flooded matriarchal realm, exhibit more mastery and confidence, and to regulate the flow of water within his inner and outer landscapes. He fortifies his own ego strength through the building of concrete and elaborate structures and bridges in the sand. This paper was presented at Sandplay Therapy: Spanning the Great Divide, STA 2010 National Conference Boulder, Colorado, USA.
