Reviews and Endorsements

"This book is the first stop for any therapist wishing to explore the world of sandtray therapy. Just as the grains of sand congregate in the sandtray, Homeyer and Sweeney have captured the essential grains of wisdom to pull together the clinical work of sandtray therapy: its history, scope, movement, and therapeutic power. Sandtray Therapy integrates cultural and theoretical considerations, research evidence, and the art and science of the process with sound practical advice." - Judi Parson, PhD, RN, BAPT, APPTA, RPT-S, senior lecturer and discipline lead for play therapy at Deakin University, Australia.

"This book grabs readers’ attention from the very beginning and holds it right through to the final page. It is the most comprehensive text on its subject and ought to be required reading for all therapists who utilise sandtray therapy with clients of any age. It is an impressive, comprehensive text that addresses everything you need to know regardless of your theoretical orientation. I love this book and can’t recommend it highly enough!" - Eileen Prendiville, SIAHIP, IAPTP, director of academic affairs at the Children’s Therapy Centre, Ireland.

"If you would like to enrich and expand your understanding of how to effectively conduct sandtray therapy, then this is definitely a must-have book! Using the latest research on how the brain works, the manual defines and explains sandtray therapy, outlines the steps using detailed case examples, describes the characteristics of various theoretical orientations, and explores how to conduct sandtray therapy with a wide range of populations. I absolutely endorse this manual to all sandtray clinicians worldwide." - Akiko Ohnogi, PsyD, cofounder of the Japan Association for Play Therapy.

"The fourth edition of Sandtray Therapy is a treasure trove. The content has been updated and new sections added, making it an essential guide for your playroom. Highly recommended for both experienced and new practitioners. This is the most genuinely playful book that I have seen for some time!" - Sue Jennings,, PhD, professor of play with the European Federation of Dramatherapists and pioneer of Neuro-Dramatic-Play, United Kingdom.
