Sandplay is a non-verbal therapeutic modality that allows the psyche to express itself without words. By creating scenes in the sand with small images and ﬁgurines, a person is able to express feelings directly and release what has been hidden deep in the recesses of the unconscious. The power of Sandplay comes from an understanding of archetypal symbols and symbolic language, as well as the symbolic messages contained in the sand scenes. Understanding the language of symbolic imagery and using Sandplay effectively in therapeutic settings requires extensive training and education.
