This course provides an introduction to the practice and theory of Sandtray-Worldplay Therapy and the application of journalling within Expressive Arts. These modalities give voice to the internal and external worlds of both children and adults. They are tools with which to explore, for example, issues of loss, abuse, and self-esteem and that can provide new perspectives on life experiences. Learning will be facilitated through the use of didactic, demonstrated and experiential methods. In the sandtray portion, all participants will build sandtrays as well as observe others, with ample opportunity for questions, discussion and feedback. Emerging from the sandtray section, you will gently move into journalling using various creative techniques of exploring the inner and outer worlds through writing, poetry, movement and art making. Learn to weave these modalities through each other to give them greater form and personal meaning. You are encouraged to bring any poems that are meaningful to you. This course will be of interest to professionals working with children and adults in educational, health, recreation or therapeutic settings.
