Sandplay is an increasingly popular Jungian therapy. Developed in England by Margaret Lowenfeld and in Switzerland by Dora Kalff, it knows no barriers of age, gender or language. By allowing non-verbal articulation, it adds considerably to the material available to the analyst. The author draws upon his experience in using this method of therapy to show how children and adults of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from Jungian sandplay therapy. He expresses his deep convictions about the healing of pathology, neurosis and grief through sandplay, and describes how he incorporated sandplay into his work as a non-verbal technique to help patients express the deepest archetypal images projected from the unconscious. At the heart of the book are four case studies, illustrating the range and effectiveness of sandplay in its human clinical dimension.
