Incorporating the Sandtray Into Therapy Work With Teens and Adults
*Approved by the Kansas BSRB and ASWB for 3 CE hours*
Do you ever find yourself feeling stuck in sessions with adult or teenage clients, knowing there is more work to do but struggling to get to the next level?
Perhaps you are a therapist who works mostly with adults, scrolling past any webinars or trainings about play therapy with kids, but are wanting to learn an experiential technique to enhance your work with clients.
Maybe you already use the sandtray in your therapy work, but are looking for some new and refreshing ideas to enhance your work in the sand.
Sandtray therapy is not only for child therapists! Use of the sandtray can be a powerful therapeutic intervention to compliment your work with adult or teen clients, no matter what your therapeutic theory.
This webinar will give you the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ to start incorporating sandtray therapy into your practice. This is an introductory level course, however even a seasoned sandtray therapist might gain different ideas or perspectives from taking this course.
This course is designed for clinicians or therapy interns who already have clinical skills and a theoretical base to help clients through trauma and other issues that may come up in a sandtray session.
In this course, you will learn about the therapeutic powers of the sandtray, learn the logistics of setting up a tray in your office and introducing it to your clients, watch videos of sandtray therapy demonstrations, and consider ways that the sandtray can be incorporated into a variety of different treatment modalities and theories.
This training is self-paced and includes the watching of videos and completing a post-test at the end. Questions or requests for accessibility accommodations may be directed to the presenter at [email protected].
This course has been approved by the Kansas BSRB (approval SP23-002). Many other states will also approve CEs approved by Kansas.
