SAND TRAY/RICE TRAY WORKSHOP (INTEGRATIVE INTERVENTIONS)
The sand tray is a therapeutic tool that has its roots in Jungian therapy. Certain techniques are often proscribed in order for it to support Jungian theoretical aims.
The sand tray, or rice tray, however can also be used as a powerful tool for interventions supporting other theoretical approaches to counselling—cognitive-behavioral, object relations, Satir, EMDR, etc. It can be used effectively with children, adults, couples, and families.
This workshop will help the participant explore how to integrate the sand tray/rice tray into their own therapeutic framework. This is a “hands-on” workshop, with a majority of the time learning and processing sand tray/rice tray interventions.
