About this event

This TWO day workshop will include: the origins, benefits and elements of sand-tray work within a cross cultural trauma informed framework; Jung's psychological framework and its application to sand-tray work; the trauma complex; safety and contraindications for sand-tray work; understanding and exploring symbols in the therapeutic context; directed and spontaneous styles of sand-tray work in the trauma/cross cultural context; working with adults and children.

The workshop is intended for social workers, psychologists and counsellors who would like to develop an understanding of the use of sand-trays, symbol and story in their work with those recovering from trauma and cultural dislocation. The workshop will cover theory and practice with many opportunities for experiential practice.
