Sandplay Therapy Institute

Sponsored by Sandplay Therapists of America

When we succeed with this work of bringing about an inner harmony
which defines a personality, we can talk of grace - Dora M. Kalff

The Sandplay Therapists of America is pleased to announce the second training course of the Sandplay Therapy Institute, beginning in September 2012. This is the first permanent institute for the study of sandplay in the United States. Affordability is a key priority. Students say that this unique, successive training program brings an impressive deepening in the understanding of Kalffian sandplay.

The purpose of this institute is to promote the study of sandplay as developed by Dora Kalff. Our goal is to provide a learning environment for in-depth study of sandplay and to explore the intricate workings of the human psyche.

Program Overview
The core sandplay curriculum will be augmented with coursework in Jungian psychology, mythology, dream work, spiritual traditions and symbolic process. It will be integrated with clinical and therapeutic case material of children and adults. Each seminar is taught by Certified Sandplay Teachers. The coursework will be completed over a two-year period with four intensive weekends per year (two each fall and two each spring). Completion of this training program meets all of the coursework requirements for ISST/STA certified membership. Courses may also be taken individually.

Where: The two-year program will be located in Tampa, Florida.
