In this experiential workshop, fundamentals of sandplay therapy, as developed by Dora Kalff will be illustrated through the the sandplay case presentation of a child. The idea of responding aesthetically, focusing on sensation and emotion as opposed to thought or intellect will be applied. Through the use of art media, participants will explore their aesthetic response to the sandplay images presented. The parallels between creating a free and protected space in the consultation room and the impact this has on the client’s process will be highlighted, as well as the complimentary use of art and sandplay. There will be room for discussion and questions throughout the afternoon
