Sand Tray Therapy
Sand Tray Therapy is an amazing approach that I love to use with all my kids. People process things using pictures and images first using the right part of our brain and is then processed using the left brain through language. Therefore, the left side of our brain holds our traumas, our feelings, and emotions. Sand Tray is effective because it allows those traumas to be processed and shown using the right side of the brain and THEN, the left side can comprehend and sometimes use words to describe traumas they may not even know are there. Sand Tray allows me to get to know my kids better than the use of only words every will.
