“Sandtray Therapy: A Humanistic Approach”
The purpose of this book is to provide practitioners, advanced graduate students and supervisors a model of sandtray processing from a humanistic perspective. The DVD that accompanies this book demonstrates a way to process a sandtray therapy session with a real adult client. The session on the DVD is an actual sandtray therapy session that is unedited. The primary focus of this book is on one way to do sandtray therapy with adults and adolescents and on the DVD I demonstrate how I do it.
If you are a practitioner/clinician or a graduate student in counseling or a related field who is curious about sandtray, this book will help you provide quality interventions with clients and may stimulate interest in further training. If you are a supervisor who wants to use sandtray with supervisees, I have included a chapter that covers the use of sandtray in supervision. If you are a play therapist who wants to know about sandtray, I believe this book will interest you as well.

Praise For Sandtray Therapy: A Humanistic Approach
"A wonderful addition to the field! Sandtray therapy use is growing exponentially and Steve's new book will facilitate this growth and add critical depth. Steve sets the sandtray therapy work in context of theory and in content with the client. This is an invaluable view into the purpose of the counselor while processing the session. Finally, each chapter has an invitation to reflect upon what one has read - it drew me into deeper self-awareness and self-discovery."

"Dr. Armstrong insightfully combines the core conditions, with elements of play therapy and in-the-moment gestalt to transport the reader to an advanced understanding and application of sandtray. The DVD is a bold and inspiring revelation moving beyond words to demonstrate how sandtray is done with a real client. In Sandtray Therapy: A Humanistic Approach, Dr. Armstrong not only talks the talk but in the DVD walks the walk."
Stephen Freeman, Ph. D., Professor, Chair Department of Counseling Texas A&M University-Commerce and author of Ethics: An Introduction to Philosophy and Practice and Grief and Loss: Understanding the Journey
"Sandtray Therapy: A Humansitic Approach is an exceptional presentation on the method of sandtray therapy from the humanistic perspective. Dr. Armstrong provides insight regarding the therapist's use of self throughout the therapeutic sandtray process that is typically overlooked in counseling publications. In addition to providing extensive discussion on the function of processing to help therapists gain a better understanding of their role, Dr. Armstrong provides the unique tool of sharing an authentic client session where we are able to really see his concepts at work. This book will help both novice and experienced therapists enhance their skills in facilitating sandtray, as well as other expressive arts therapies, with clients."
