SANDPLAY ORIGINS: SANDPLAY WITH DORA KALFF
PROGRESSION AND REGRESSION IN SANDPLAY THERAPY
Northern California Regional Sandplay Society Training Program
2015 SANDPLAY THERAPY TRAINING IN HUMBOLDT
The Northern California Regional Sandplay Society plans to offer further Sandplay Therapy training in Fall 2015. Details will be available soon. Please contact me if you are interested in workshops, consultation or experiencing your own process in the sand.
The International Society for Sandplay Therapy recommends that all therapists offering sandplay experience a personal process with a trained practitioner. Having your own therapeutic experience of sandplay therapy deepens your understanding of yourself and the healing process in the sand. Read more about it on this website under Sandplay Therapy.
Please contact me if you would like more information about sandplay for yourself or training to work with clients.
Previous Courses offered include:
Symbolic Process in Sandplay Therapy: 2012 in Humboldt
Symbolic Literacy: Look at Your World in a New Way: 2012- OLLI in Eureka
The Language of Symbols: 2011 at Sandplay Therapy Institute in Minnesota
"Symbolic Process in Sandplay Therapy"
This 6-hour Fundamentals of Sandplay course has a focus on symbolic process and its relevance to Sandplay Therapy. We explore a cluster of symbols relating to centering and circulating. Such symbols are commonly seen in sandplay representing psychological change. Images of circles, spheres, spirals,
mandalas are illustrated through Sandplay of both adults and children. The presentation combines clinical and experiential material.
This was an inaugural course in Humboldt County which will lead to further training and continuous course offerings in order to meet requirements for Sandplay Therapy certification. It is with great excitement that I am part of this opportunity for therapists in far Northern California to have a training program that is very difficult to find locally.

"Symbolic Literacy: Look at Your World in a New Way"
Do you notice the symbols surrounding you? How are our everyday symbols similar or distinct from those of other cultures? Symbolic literacy is fun to learn and apply. Learning the language of symbols gives us insight into other cultures, history, the arts, literature, mythology and our personal lives.
This course offers a variety of resources for researching symbols online, in libraries and through hands-on experiences. You select symbols to explore both in class and independently. Share discoveries and collections of symbols with their definitions and associations. The goal is to appreciate the ways we constantly interact with symbols and how they enrich our inner and outer lives.Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).
All Wednesdays in February, 2011. Eureka CA.
"The Language of Symbols"
In this 2 hour workshop session, we explored the personal and collective experience of symbols through improvisational movement using sandplay figures.
