About this course

Introduction to Sandplay Therapy

This Introductory video course encompasses three short films, totaling about 20 minutes. Here Dr. Turner starts at the beginning, assuming we know nothing about sandplay. Just as happens in her in-person trainings, the participants gradually build  a clear and solid foundational understanding of Jungian sandplay.

Dr. Turner introduces the Sandplay film courses and provides some guidance on how to best approach the study of sandplay

Following this, Dr. Turner then examines what sandplay therapy actually is and what this method does in the clinical setting. The discussion continues to a review of the differences between the non-verbal, image-based nature of sandplay and traditional verbal therapies.

Finally, Dr. Turner reviews the significance of the various elements involved in sandplay work. This includes the size of the tray and the meaningful presence of the sand and water in the process. The contents of the sandplay collection are also reviewed.
