Sandtray Trainings

“The gift of an image is that it provides a place to watch your soul.”

—James Hillman

Dr. LaRosa has been conducting training since 2014, and studied intensively with Gisela DeDomenico, a pioneer of Sandtray Therapy. Furthermore, she was an adjunct professor at NYU Post Masters Program at the Silver School of Social Work. For several years she taught coursework here on how to integrate Sandtray Therapy into clinical practice. Dr. LaRosa currently offers training for introductory and advanced level courses on how to utilize Sandtray Therapy with all ages and clinical populations.

These courses teach: how to invite creativity into the therapeutic relationship; as well as how to explore and appreciate the symbolic representations that our psyche can express.

The courses will teach participants how to invite creativity into the therapeutic relationship, as well as how to explore and develop an appreciation for the symbolic representations our psyche can express. Other course objectives include how to: work with imagery, integrate metaphors into clinical work, and create therapeutic space for the transformative journeys Sandtray Therapy can invite.

Advanced courses will focus on learning how to deepen and enhance the client’s experience so that the innate wisdom it gives birth to becomes etched, woven, and integrated into their everyday life.

Sandtray therapy can also be beneficial in use for pre and post integration for psychedelic journeys, as the psyche communicates in images.

All training sessions are in-person and experiential-based. Clinical supervision for those who work with sandtray is also available through virtual appointments.
