with Rosie Dymond

This workshop is now full. Please use the booking form if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.

Monday 3rd July 2017

Rosie trained as a Non-Directive Play Therapist at York University. She has worked with children and families affected by drug and alcohol use, terminal illness and bereavement, anxiety, depression, self harm as well as a range of other issues.

This workshop will provide participants with a background understanding of the theory & development of sand tray therapy.  The workshop will focus on a non-directive model and will be interactive.  Rosie will use demonstrations, experiential exercises and case studies to introduce the key skills and principles for using a Sand Tray in therapy. These will include:

  • Considering your materials and minifigures
  • Facilitating a child-led experience;
  • Empathic reflection of children’s feelings;
  • Recognising and exploring common themes

Participants will have the opportunity to experiment within pairs / small groups using sand trays. This workshop is suitable for counsellors working with adult clients, as well as those working with children, and there will be time to discuss how these techniques might be adapted for different client groups.
