Product Description

Review

"How is it possible to put so much in such a small book?  Homeyer and Sweeney have written a definitive primer for beginning sandtray therapists. This manual is a practical, comprehensive, concise, and easy to understand approach to the essentials of sandtray therapy that could best be described as a sandtray therapy road map."Garry L. Landreth, University of North Texas, USA

"I encourage the reader to purchase and review this lovely and useful text. I love it for its accessible language, responsible reviews of the literature, creativity, and obvious passion for the work. Thank you Linda and Daniel for this great contribution to our knowledge and clear directives for application!"From the foreword by Eliana Gil, Director of Clinical Services, Gil Center for Healing & Play, Virginia, USA

"Homeyer and Sweeney understand the healing power of sandtray therapy and masterfully convey their vast knowledge and experience in a clearly written and practical guide. Their manual is an essential resource for beginning and seasoned practitioners, and is a must for teaching sandtray---it belongs on the shelf of all mental health professionals!"Sue Bratton, Department of Counseling, Development, and Higher Education, University of North Texas; Center for Play Therapy, USA

Format: Paperback
I love this user friendly book! It has a good mix of theory and practical advice for would be therapists to use.
The only disappointment for me is that the photos inside the book are all black and white and I would have liked more colour photos, it is hard to distinguish objects when they are black and white and that is the point of this type of book!

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was an excellent 'How To' guide for any therapist wishing to incorporate sandtray therapy into their client work with both adults and children. The authors give guidance on how to set up a sandtray therapy resource from scratch, even listing the categories of miniatures required with suggestions of how to display them when setting up a sandtray therapy session. This is a very good resource book.

I would have given this book five stars but for the poor quality of the black and white photographs. I thought this let the publication down a bit. I think the images would have been more effective if they had been in colour, or at the very least of a better quality. Colour prints would possibly increase the production costs of the book. However, I think it would have been worth it to pay for the extra quality and see images with a clearer definition.

I bought this book to get a futher understanding of what sand therapy is and I am glad that I chose this one. At 111 pages, it is shorter than other sand books that are available, it does not take away any of its quality. The biggest and most important aspect of this book is the passion the authors have for the subject, which makes it an easy read. This book is useful for students, parents and teachers.

As a trainee counsellor, I found this a very useful introduction to sandtray therapy. Equal weight is given to the theory and practical aspects of using sandtray therapy in your counselling sessions. I would definitely recommend this book for beginners but it contains information useful for all levels of experience.
