Sandplay and Storytelling: The Impact of Imaginative Thinking on Children's Learning and Development

In this ground-breaking work, sandplay psychotherapist, Barbara Turner, PhD, partners with Learning Specialist, Kristín Unnsteinsdóttir, PhD, to explore how engaging children in Jungian sandplay therapy and imaginative story telling works to improve classroom performance and to increase intelligence scores. These child specialists make a solid argument for the necessary consideration of the unconscious and the inner world of the individual child in learning. They advocate that curriculum design for children must include imaginative therapeutic play and active attention to children’s emotional needs. This is a very readable book for educators, psychotherapists and concerned parents, alike.

Sandtray Play in Education

Sandtray Play in Education

This is a manual for training teachers in the Sandtray Play in Education method. It introduces a holistic approach to childhood education that returns the child’s natural medium of creative play to the learning environment. Sadly, most approaches to contemporary childhood education are not successful in teaching children the riches of language and numbers and the capacities to think, inquire and create. We are failing our children by not designing educational curricula that is appropriate to the learning styles of children.
