Abstract

Building in a sand tray provides the builder the opportunity for self-awareness and insight. The miniature figures afford the chance to symbolize thoughts, experiences, and metaphors filled with personal meaning. Since Margaret Lowenfeld initiated its development as part of the zeitgeist of the emerging field of child psychotherapy and play therapy, mental health professionals around the world use the sand tray and materials as a therapeutic tool. Sand tray therapy methods are equally effective tools for supervision of mental health counselors in training.
