Working with the Arts - Introduction to Sandplay
Saturday, March 26, 2011 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM (GMT)
Newick, United Kingdom
Are you interested in working with sandtrays and miniatures? Would you like to experience working in this way?
Sandplay is an arts/play based approach, using sand, a tray, water and a choice of miniature figures and objects. Sandplay can be used with adults and children, as an addition to talking therapies or can be employed as a creative arts approach in its own right.
Safe and effective, Sandplay work encourages permission, protection and potency, whilst supporting the deepening of contact and process. Sandplay therapy is a metaphoric and symbolic process, employing both left and right brain hemispheres in exploring conscious and unconscious material, within the safety of the ‘theatre in a sandbox’.
This introductory workshop is intended for qualified or trainee counsellors/therapists who are interested to explore the potential of Sandplay within the therapeutic relationship. This workshop will give you plenty of opportunity to engage with Sandplay on the day and to experience the potency of this seemingly simple medium for yourself.
During the day we will:
- Outline the history and origins of Sandplay
- Explore some of the purpose and potential of Sandplay
- Introduce some ways of working effectively and safely with Sandplay
- Look at resourcing Sandplay in therapeutic work
- Have fun with Sandplay and enjoy playing with seriousness….
NO ARTISTIC ABILITY IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP
