About the training

31 oct. - 01 nov.

Fantasy, symbol and play have central roles in the development of the individual. What is effective in Sand-PLAY-Therapy, when we regard play through a Jungian/ Analytik frame? In this Theory Online-Training we will learn and exercise about mediatory and transitional activities in Sandplay Therapy, especially about Jungs core concept of the symbol-creating „Transcendent function“, which anticipated Winnicotts ideas about play by several decades. We also want to reflect on the role of the therapist and the symbolic attitude in working with the transcendent function. 

Theoretical concepts will be illustrated by case-material.


We welcome psychologists, psychotherapists, doctors and school counsellors across the world to join us online.

About Sandplay

It is a therapeutic method developed by Dora M. Kalff, in Zollikon, Switzerland, based on the psychological principles of C.G.Jung. It is a creative form of therapy using the imagination, characterized by the use of sand, water and miniatures in the creation of images within a “free and protected space” of the therapeutic relationship and the sand tray. A series of Sandplay images portrayed in the sand tray create an ongoing dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious aspects of the client’s psyche, which activates a healing process and the development of the personality. This therapeutic method may be successfully applied to individual work with both adults and children. (please see
