Our World in Miniature: Sand Tray Skills for Professionals
Sand tray is often considered the psychotherapy for children -- almost a term that substitutes for “play therapy.” In fact, the use of a sand tray and miniatures offers an extremely useful way to work with teens, adults, couples and groups.
“Our World in Miniature: Sand Tray Skills for Professionals” will be presented from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, June 22, at Liberty Place, 313 W. Liberty St., Lancaster. Instructor will be Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, who has been working with, refining and integrating sand tray techniques and styles since the 1990s.
In this professional training workshop, participants will become acquainted with the versatility of sand tray for a variety of settings and populations, as well as expand their skills by integrating complimentary creative arts therapies and other experiential methods in the sand tray process.
Sand tray is especially helpful in concretizing, clarifying and resolving the conflicting energies, motivations, values, and voices that often contribute to a sense of “stuckness” with our clients. Its in-hand availability easily engages people who may have difficulty in talking about their problems or life issues, and the images that are formed and re-formed are compatible with the latest research on neurobiology and how our brain and being accept new images into consciousness.
In this workshop, you will learn:
There will be ample time for questions, discussion and case consultation, as well as the option to address personal issues in a confidential atmosphere.
Tuition is $85 if registered by June 15, $105 after. It includes six continuing education hours for social workers, marriage and family therapists and professional counselors, plus psychodrama hours, and handout, beverages and healthy snacks.
This training day is suitable for:
Mental health professionals, marriage and family therapists, creative arts therapists, addiction counselors, physicians and other medical professionals, personal and executive coaches, educators, clergy, community and social activists, alternative health practitioners and others interested in experiential methods.
Participants will have the option to address personal issues in a supportive and confidential setting, as well as bring past or present client cases forward for supervision.
You may register in one of two ways:
Participants will have the opportunity to peruse a wide selection of sand tray miniatures and to purchase more or more packages of “starter” miniatures for a nominal fee.
A selection of Karen’s books, including “Show and Tell Psychodrama: Skills for Therapists, Coaches, Teachers, Leaders” and “Healing Eating Disorders with Psychodrama and Other Action Methods: Beyond the Silence and the Fury,” will be available for sale.
