Sandtray is a projective, Jungian oriented method. As Carl Jung might look at a dream, you can look at everything in the tray as representing a part of the whole person. As a client builds their world, they will choose miniatures that have conscious and unconscious meaning to them. The way they choose, place, arrange, and show interaction between items in the tray is a way to express the inner parts of themselves. This is a unique opportunity for the client to work out conflicts while being accepted. This can cause deep, internal changes that free them to be able to focus on the present.
