Sandplay: A Sourcebook for Play Therapists demonstrates the way transformation happens. Like the body, the psyche is designed to be self-healing. Its contents can be restructured. If a clinician wanted to better understand a childs use of a snake in sand tray therapy how many resources are there? Where does one go? To date there has been no single text that aids in understanding the symbolism children use in play. This is just such a book.Sandplay is practical. The clinician can easily find information using The Dictionary of Play Imagery, or the extensive Subject Index. The text is interwoven with ample references to crucial clinical findings. Case studies clearly illustrate each point. This book will find a permanent place in therapists' libraries.
