The Sandplay Collection

& Symbolic Language:

Implications in the transference relationship

A live, interactive webinar hosted by Sandplay Therapists of Hawaiʻi


Presented by:  Marion Anderson, PhD
Jungian Analyst and Certified Sandplay Teacher (STA/ISST)


Saturday, April 30, 2022 9am-3pm HI time

(12pm-6pm PST)

Working with our collection of miniatures is filled with emotion, magic and synchronicities. In this workshop we will explore the sandplay collection with emphasis on the archetypal nature of the symbols, our relationship to the collection, positive and negative transference, and stories of synchronicity. Various approaches to setting up the miniatures and working with the symbols outside of sandplay will also be explored.  

Learning objectives:
Describe 10 categories of the sandplay collection 
Discuss the archetypal nature of figures in sandplay therapy
Identify and experience the symbolic importance of a figurine 
Discuss the relationship of therapist to their figurines
Explain positive and negative transference through sandplay figurines  

Who should attend: Play/sandplay therapists, social workers or mental health professionals interested in a post-graduate level workshop and earning training hours toward credentialing as a sandplay therapist.
