So we've given you guidelines for returning to in-person sessions, but let's go deeper...
I know that when thinking about practicing sandtray in a post-COVID world, there are a million questions and fears...What does using sandtray look like in the "new normal" of our society? How do we do this safely? How do we use sandtray if we can't be in the room? Can we provide the "neuroception of safety" at 6ft apart or over a computer screen? What are my options for virtual techniques? Is this legal? If I practice in-person, will my clients and I be safe? HOW DO I EVEN BEGIN???
Don't worry, we've got you!
Amy has put together a FREE TRAINING that will cover:
- Sandtrayish* techniques and options for telehealth for those not able to practice in-person (and how to get the right brain working, even if you're not in the same room)
- Tips for transitioning to in person sessions (with health guidelines, legal info, safety tips, and TONS of examples and options for how this can be done)
- And how to *REALLY* take care of yourself (cause bubble baths just ain't gonna cut it)
Whether you're a brand new therapist, or a seasoned pro, this training is a MUST for anyone who uses sandtray in their practice...and it's COMPLETELY FREE!

ALSO, this isn't just a one-and-done training. The faster you sign up, the MORE amazing stuff you get with it. We have cheat sheets, we have printables, we have giveaways, and we have something special planned for EVERY day this week when you have signed up to attend this training. See the schedule of events below:
All of these minis were selected by different members of the Southern Sandtray team, as representative of aspects of the pandemic and current state of our lives as we experience this thing together. Instead of us naming and explaining, I challenge you to explore the powerful symbolism of these miniatures, what feelings these bring up for you, and how they might be utilized in your clients' trays in the weeks, months, and even years to come.
So if you LOVE things like this upcoming training (and come on, who doesn't love amazing sandtray knowledge and free stuff?!), then the Sandtray Suite is absolutely the place for you! This community is THE BEST group of clinicians, taking their sandtray game to the next level every month with BRAND NEW trainings, brain informed techniques, done-for-you activities created by experts in the field, printables, giveaways, AND we just have tons of fun together, no joke.
One of my favorite things about this community is that it opens a dialogue and allows for diverse views and practice experiences, and we get a chance to learn from one another. Next month, we will be meeting with guest expert Carmen Jiminez-Pride for a real-talk discussion about diversity and representation in sandtray therapy, and how to support BIPOC clients and colleagues authentically. This is a much needed training and could not come at a better time for our profession and society. We ALL could use this wisdom in our practice!
Another of my favorite things for Plus members is THE MINI BOX!
*Spoilers Ahead* So if you haven't yet received your box because of mailing delays, you better stop reading HERE.
I'm sure your brain is already thinking of the literal hundreds of ways that these miniatures could be utilized in sessions with anyone struggling with self-image, disordered eating, unhealthy habits, health issues, self-worth, etc, etc, etc! PLUS you also receive a card discussing each miniature and it's symbolism, some directives, AND a self-care item, just for you! This box is is such an amazing resource to receive quarterly, and we love getting you minis that you might not find elsewhere. It's like Christmas once a quarter!
Think that this community is something YOU want to be a part of?
