KEY WORDS: Sandplay, clinical example, child, boy, male, adoption, father, mother, parents, family, anxious attachment, bonding, regression, attachment trauma, relatedness, symbol, sandplay process, symbolism, mother goddess, tree, Kuan Yin, Isis, therapeutic alliance, ego, adoptive, biological, positive counter-transference, primal relationship, progression, regression, clinical example.

ABSTRACT: This case illustrates the sandplay process of Eric, an adopted six year old boy with anxious attachment. The traumatic loss of his biological family due to neglect had resulted in a disturbance of the primal relationship. His process revealed the development of the mother-child unity, the constellation of the Self, an emergence of a healthy ego and return to ordinary life. The work spanned over a period of four years and included collaborative sessions with parents. An in-depth discussion is presented of the healing images of the archetypal mother as symbolically represented by the Oak Tree, Kuan Yin, and Isis. A strong therapeutic alliance and Eric’s connection to the archetypal sheltering mother allowed for a regression and re-working of developmental phases. The gradual but successful bonding with his parents occurred during treatment. With the introduction of the element of fire in his sandplay, a melting of his grief and rage was expressed and experienced more consciously. His capacity for relatedness grew both within the family and the world at large. Sandplay had given Eric the opportunity to discover an inner strength with which to meet and better cope with life’s ups and downs.
