My goal is to train for certification as a Sand Tray Therapist. I work with high acuity clients with co-occurring mental health/substance misuse disorders. In my experience, we often see the same individuals in residential high intensity treatment many times. We seem to use the same messages and strategies which may maintain the client often do not move the client to new understanding or insight. Clients are well versed in the language of recovery and tend to parrot these well work concepts back to us on each admission. I believe that sand tray therapy may be a productive way to circumvent this routinized process and move the client forward in new and different ways.
