Unlike most books in the field of psychotherapy, which focus on the application of theory and practice to working with clients, this volume takes a step back, exploring through personal narrative the path of the therapist. How and why did these therapists from all over the world stumble onto an unusual expressive modality called sandplay? Did they find it, or did it find them? And once found, what called them to experience firsthand and then to specialize in this unusual therapeutic method offering sand, water, and miniature figures and symbols for creative expression?
In a field where talk therapy has been the gold standard for more than a century, this unique volume of stories shares what compelled these therapists to commit to a modality emphasizing not words, but the power of image and image-making to facilitate healing.
Includes articles from local analysts including Harriet S. Friedman, Sachiko Taki-Reece, and Gita Dorothy Moreno.
