Sandtray therapy is a powerful tool to support kids, teens, and young adults through anxiety, life transitions, identity development, and trauma. Sandtray therapy harnesses the sensory power in the sand and allows clients to create stories in the sand reflecting their life, belief system, and goals. While this creative approach can appear strange at first, an open heart and mind can allow for an emotional, therapeutic experience.
The International Association for Sandtray Therapy was founded in 2019 by Amy Flaherty. This association is committed to promoting increased awareness of sandtray therapy, uphold rigorous training standards, and support professionals who implement this approach through their work with clients.
