Editorial Reviews

Review

"How is it possible to put so much in such a small book?  Homeyer and Sweeney have written a definitive primer for beginning sandtray therapists. This manual is a practical, comprehensive, concise, and easy to understand approach to the essentials of sandtray therapy that could best be described as a sandtray therapy road map."Garry L. Landreth, University of North Texas, USA

"I encourage the reader to purchase and review this lovely and useful text. I love it for its accessible language, responsible reviews of the literature, creativity, and obvious passion for the work. Thank you Linda and Daniel for this great contribution to our knowledge and clear directives for application!"From the foreword by Eliana Gil, Director of Clinical Services, Gil Center for Healing & Play, Virginia, USA

"Homeyer and Sweeney understand the healing power of sandtray therapy and masterfully convey their vast knowledge and experience in a clearly written and practical guide. Their manual is an essential resource for beginning and seasoned practitioners, and is a must for teaching sandtray---it belongs on the shelf of all mental health professionals!"Sue Bratton, Department of Counseling, Development, and Higher Education, University of North Texas; Center for Play Therapy, USA

Easy, quick, informative read.

This book, on the other hand, is exactly what it is presented as, that is, a practical manual for sand therapy.

I will use this to facilitate clients doing trays and helping me to understand them.

I have purchased many therapy books which would be presented as practical manuals only to get quickly lost in theory, thus leaving the reader wondering how this technique is actually supposed to be implemented in clinical practice. This book, on the other hand, is exactly what it is presented as, that is, a practical manual for sand therapy. The authors make it clear that this book by itself is far from providing training for the implementation of sand therapy, said this, the books provides a great introduction to the subject of sand therapy by giving a down to earth review of how sand therapy can be integrated in clinical practice. Given the very reasonable price of this book and the remarkable quality of the manual I would highly recommend it to clinicians who are starting to look into applying sand therapy or that just want a fresh outlook on the subject.

This is a book that presents the use of sand and selected minitures in a theraputic environment. This method is used for children and adults. Once one learns the technique, it becomes an additional modality to help people. Counselors, social workers and psychologist will profit from reading this book and taking additional classes in how to use sandtray therapy. I highly recomend reading it.

This book is amazing! The information is concise, accurate, descriptive, and easy to understand and apply. I am on a journey to learn more about Sandplay Therapy which differs from Sandtray therapy; however, this book has really helped me to further grasp and respect the fundamental differences between the two approaches and techniques used. I love the this manual offers a shopping list for the beginner therapist, a vast amount of case studies, many pictures of actual client trays, and descriptive and in-depth explanations and examples of various approaches you can use with this technique. Whether you are a Jungian or CBT or any kind of helping person (who practice with a theoretical approach)interested in helping more people overcome trauma, abuse, or other hurt(s) & pain BUY THIS BOOK! You will learn so much and have a better sense of how to apply it for the hurting people in your practice. I know you will enjoy exploring this technique with this book! Enjoy your growth spurt!

Linda Homeyer has done an outstanding job of presenting the nuts and bolts of sandtray therapy with this book. If you have to choose one book to purchase on this topic, this would be it. Well-organized and information and worth the price.

I use sand tray therapy in my practice. I go back to this resource often. The information presented is a great reminder for what I learned in training.
