Sandplay Therapy

Not enough research.

What is Sandplay Therapy?

1. People (especially children) will engage in play behavior in order to work throughashley-batz-1298-unsplash their interior obfuscations and anxieties.

2. According to this particular viewpoint, play therapy can be used as a self-help mechanism, as long as children are allowed time for “free play” or “unstructured play.”

3. An example of a more directive approach to play therapy, for example, can entail the use of a type of desensitization or relearning therapy, to change troubling behaviors, either systematically or through a less structured approach.

4. The hope is that through the language of symbolic play, such desensitization will likely take place, as a natural part of the therapeutic experience, and lead to positive treatment outcomes.
