Using sand and small world figures in the counselling room can be an adaptive and flexible way of meeting the client in a more creative and visual manner, which some clients may be drawn to and may find healing, alongside the process and their relationship with their counsellor.
Sand tray work often is effective in overcoming client resistance and can create powerful narratives that allow clients concerns to be seen and understood in a way a client may not be able to access with just words or may feel too vulnerable to try to express in words.
The sand tray is a safe place for exploring pre-verbal, conscious and unconscious expressions of feelings, sense of self or lived experiences. Clients may use miniatures to hold a symbolic narrative instead of directly dialoguing their stories.
Sand tray work is cross-theoretical and this short course is open to counsellors of all modalities who would like to find out more about using sand tray and work towards a greater understanding to enable them to use it with knowledge and understanding within their work.
Our 2 weekend CPD course will cover the theory of sand play, symbolism from Jungian psychology and its humanistic application. It will include theory and experiential work and we will provide a warm, inviting and relaxed environment within which to learn more and experience this powerful healing medium.
Our 4 days together will include working with sand trays as a tool for the following: helping to heal the psyche; within supervision; community healing; dream time and personal insight. There will be a blend of theoretical ideas, practical sessions, group discussions and personal and professional experiential work.
All equipment will be provided but please bring a notebook, pen and playful disposition !
This course is being held in a very large, beautiful hall in Bolney, West Sussex. We have access to the field directly behind the hall and use of a kitchen and café style area for our breaks. We are therefore opening this CPD course up to 20 participants as we will have the space and imagine this will be a popular course. It is a lovely new venue for CBCT Ltd and we are looking forward to seeing you there.
