Play is the work of children. Having Children choose toy figures to represent people, qualities or events in their lives has enormous therapeutic benefits. With gentle facilitation a child can work through feelings and challenges in their life. According to Dr. Carl Jung “An emotional experience that cannot be understood or resolved by cognitive means can often be dealt with by giving it visible shape. In the creation of the world using sand, water, objects, and the hands, something magical appears to occur and the solution that only the client’s unconscious knows is transmitted to the hands of the builder. An integrated entity is manifested in the tray. The client may have an Aha! experience. In children, for whom play and life tend to be synonymous, the objectification of the unconscious material in sandplay leads to integration into present reality.”
