Course media


Sandplay Therapy is a play therapy modality which consists of a child, or adult client making whatever he or she feels like building with a wide assortment of miniature figures in a tray of sand in the presence of a trained professional.

Barbara Turner, PHD, was first introduced to Sandplay when she witnessed a client undergo a life-changing experience by doing just one sandplay session. She trained with Dora Kalff in Switzerland and developed a Core Curriculum in Sandplay. She also worked in clinical practice for over 25 years.

This course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn about the fundamentals of sandplay. Dr. Turner examines the trays in the process of several clinical cases and demonstrates how to analyse the first tray to create a plan to improve the client's psyche in future sessions.

Who is this course for?

Ideal for anybody interested in learning about Sandplay and using it to help clients.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
