Sand tray is a powerful and affective therapeutic tool for many reasons. One of the biggest reasons is that it allows the client to express thoughts, themes, emotions, ideas, and memories on the “outside,” conceptualizing what is happening in the brain and physicalizing it in the tray. It also creates a safe place where anything is allowed to be expressed, allowing us to represent and process things that are sometimes too difficult to put into words. Sand tray allows clients the opportunity to show their therapist the client’s world. Even the act of choosing miniatures for representation and placing them in sand provides necessary grounding to increase one’s tolerance for processing. Sandy Tray can be combined with most therapy modalities to provide the most relevant, timely, and affective intervention for each client.
