Coupling in the Sand Tray:
Incorporating Sand Tray Into Your Work With Couples
Carly Syriste, MA, RCC
We hope you enjoy this 1 hour & 15 minutes – Pre-recorded Play Café
This Play Café will cover some basic ideas and frameworks for using sand tray and sandplay therapy with couples.
When couples reach an impasse in their relationship, a great deal of emotional energy is devoted to disagreements and conflict with little energy left to seek creative solutions. Partners often differ in their love language and communication style which can make it difficult to ‘talk’ through relational conflicts towards resolution. According to Zappacosta (2004), non-verbal therapies such as sand tray can play an important role in helping couples externalize their experiences within their relationship and for each person individually.
Who May Benefit from this Play Café:
Play therapists, children’s counsellors, family therapists, family counsellors, psychologists, social workers, school counsellors, and other mental health professionals working with children, adolescents and families may benefit from this training. A basic understanding of play therapy would be beneficial.
