Prerequisite: Basic understanding of sandtray process.


Adolescents can be difficult to engage in therapy due to normal developmental issues such as mistrust of adults, self-consciousness and difficulty verbalizing concerns. Sandtray interventions are a way to utilize play therapy to minimize the obstacles that hinder treatment with this population. This workshop uses primarily discussion and experientially based teaching methods. Class size is small to enhance the depth of learning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify treatment challenges unique to working with adolescents in play therapy
  • Describe the developmental tasks of adolescents
  • Compare expressive and talk therapy approaches to work with adolescents
  • Apply neurobiological research to support the use of sandtray in clinical practice with adolescents
  • Describe the process of using sandtray based on experiential practice & group discussion
  • Assess potential counter transferential and ethical material in working with adolescents
  • Apply expressive art interventions in preparation for play therapy with adolescents
