    <p><span>How do therapists discover a healing method that really works for them and inspires their own life's work? 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.<br><br>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?</span></p><p><span>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.<br><br>Contemporary neuroscience research has drawn attention to the importance of expressive, nonverbal modalities. These methods can access body memories that that have not reached our verbal awareness. The incorporation of sandplay into a therapy process can facilitate neural integration of touch, sight, proprioception, motor systems, the autonomic nervous system, associative and memory systems activated by the miniatures, and then, through reflection on the completed tray, forebrain regions involved in higher level emotional self-regulation and integrated decision-making.<br><br>In the process of reading these stories, you will learn that sandplay is not simply a technique. It is based upon values derived from the Analytical Psychology of C. G. Jung and the Buddhist practice of its founder, Dora Kalff. In sandplay, the patient-therapist relationship is based upon integrity, respect, and safety. A patient in therapy is invited to make a spontaneous creation in a sand tray, with the option of adding water and miniatures, as well as natural and decorative objects. The therapist, who has extensive training, is most often a quiet witness of the process. Together, they observe, but do not interpret, the production in the tray. Sand trays are made as often or seldom as the patient chooses over the course of the therapy. In this milieu, solutions to the patient's dilemma emerge rather than being directed by the therapist.<br><br>If you are interested in the unconscious, creative expression, and healing from the depths, then you will want to read this book.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong><span>Dyane N. Sherwood, Ph.D.</span></strong><span> is a Jungian psychoanalyst (IAAP) and sandplay therapist (CST-T, ISST). During her 35 years of private practice she has witnessed the profound therapeutic impact of expressive methods, including sandplay. Dr. Sherwood is a graduate of Wellesley College, received her PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, and was a post-doctoral scholar and acting Assistant Professor in the Program in Human Biology at Stanford University. She conducted research in cellular neurophysiology during her graduate and postdoctoral years, publishing her work in the <em>Journal of Experimental Biology</em> (Cambridge), <em>Brain Research</em>, and the <em>Journal of Neurophysiology</em>. Dr. Sherwood retrained as a psychologist and later underwent analytic training at the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, where she was certified in both adult and in child and adolescent analysis. Her interests include Native American Spirituality and shamanism, alchemy as a language of inner transformation, the art of Wassily Kandinsky, and the neurobiology of affective communication and change. She has taught and published in all these areas. She co-authored <em>Transformation of the Psyche: The Symbolic Alchemy of the Splendor Solis</em> (Routledge, 2003) with the late Joseph L. Henderson, who was an analysand of C. G. Jung and the only American contributor to <em>Man and His Symbols</em>.</span></p><p><span>She now lives in Oberlin, Ohio, where she has a private practice (https://dyanesherwood.com) and has established the <em>Analytical Psychology Press.</em></span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong><span>Betty C.

Her articles have appeared in the <em>Journal of Sandplay Therapy</em>, and she serves on the Board of Directors for the ISST. She teaches internationally and has established The Center for Jungian Sandplay in southeastern Pennsylvania in order to offer sandplay process, consultation, and training in the tradition of Dora Kalff.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong><span>Contributors:</span></strong></p><p><span>Rut Boss-Baumann</span><br>Brian Beetje<br>LaVon Bobo<br>Maggie Baron<br>Maria Ellen Chiaia<br>Lynne Ehlers<br>Lorraine Razzi Freedle<br>Harriet S. Friedman<br>Hannah-Valeria Grisko<br>Gao Lan and Shen Heyong<br>Grace L. Hong<br>Margaret Humphris<br>Betty Jackson<br>Maria Kendler<br>Gita Dorothy Morena<br>Audrey Punnett<br>Sarah Sugatt<br>Sachiko Taki-Reece<br>Dyane N. Sherwood<br>Sylvia Simonyi-Elmer<br>Lenore Steinhardt<br>Louis Stewart<br>Janet Tatum<br>Judy D. Zappacosta</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>This book brilliantly illuminates the transformative power of sandplay therapy, which bridges body and mind, conscious and unconscious and thus has the potential to achieve neural integration. This is achieved through the rich mirror of testimonies by therapists about how they were led to this method through inner guidance and personal encounters with the founder of the method, Dora Kalff, and other representatives of sandplay.&nbsp;In this way the book also offers new and sometimes surprising insights into the history of sandplay and its application.&nbsp;<strong>-- Martin Kalff</strong></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>While many sandplay books are about clinical technique, this one is about meaning. Jung stated, <em>“The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.” </em>In this volume of collected stories, sandplay therapists from around the world speak of how they encountered ISST sandplay therapy and its impact on themselves and their clinical work. It is rare glimpse into how a therapeutic method becomes a way of life. --&nbsp;<strong>Alexander Esterhuyzen</strong></p>

    <p><span><strong><em>Sandplay: A Psychotherapeutic Approach to the Psyche</em></strong></span></p><p><span><strong>by Dora Kalff</strong></span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span>Dora Kalff’s classic, originally published in German in 1966, is the foundational book of the psychotherapeutic modality she called “Sandspiel” in German, translated “Sandplay” in English. In sandplay, the therapist quietly witnesses while the patient creates a “world” in a shallow tray half-filled with sand. Miniatures and natural objects, such as stones and shells, are provided for use in these creations.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span>Sandplay is now practiced around the world. Contemporary readers will discover that Frau Kalff’s wisdom and way of working with children and young adults feels fresh and engaging. Her deep insight into the development of the human psyche, with reference to Eastern contemplative traditions and the work of C. G. Jung, has found support from contemporary neuroscience.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span>Sandplay is widely integrated into therapeutic work with both children and adults, allowing body-based emotions and memories to emerge in a “safe and protected space.” It has found particular application to trauma, including relief work following natural disasters and in zones of conflict.</span></p><p><span>In 1985, Kalff and her students founded the International Society for Sandplay Therapy, with branches in many countries. It is a collegial society that provides training and certification in sandplay therapy and is affiliated with the International Association of Analytical Psychology.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span><strong>Dora Maria Kalff</strong> (1904-1990) was a major contributor to the development of psychotherapeutic work with children.</span>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span>Frau Kalff was trained as a classical pianist, and she studied Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, and Chinese, in addition to modern European languages and English. She and her Dutch husband were serious collectors of Asian art, and she later became a student of Eastern meditative traditions, including the study of Zen in Japan. Following the Nazi invasion of Holland, she fled with her young son to her native Switzerland. There she came personally into contact with the Swiss psychoanalyst C. G. Jung and his school of Analytical Psychology. Jung and his wife, Emma, recognized Frau Kalff’s deep rapport with children, and they encouraged her to become a child analyst.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span>Kalff was drawn to the work of Margaret Lowenfeld, a British physician who had founded The Institute for Child Psychology in London. Kalff spent a year studying with Lowenfeld in London, where she came into contact with the British analyst, Donald Winnicott and was influenced by his work.</span>&nbsp;</p><p><span>In the 1950’s, Frau Kalff originated a method she called “Sandspiel” in German, translated “Sandplay” in English. Sandplay was based on Margaret Lowenfeld’s “World Technique,” which used a tray half-filled with sand and tiny figures and natural objects (such as shells and stones), in which the child could create a “world.”</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><span>Frau Kalff’s approach is much more than a “method.” It is a profound philosophy and practice of healing based upon Eastern meditative traditions, the work of C. G. Jung, her rich life experience, and her capacity to relate empathically to the inner lives of children and young adults.</span></p>
