The Story of a Sexually Abused Child's Sandplay: A Single Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
Thirty-six consecutive therapy sessions are examined in this study. The therapy sessions were divided into three phases that were tied to significant life events and changes in the sandplay content and process, along with the therapist-child interactions were explored in each of the phases. There were many significant changes in the content and process of the childâ s play. He went from primarily using nonliving miniatures to using primarily living miniatures in his sand worlds. Specifically, the use of people and animals increased in his third phase sandplays. The categories of miniatures the child used also increased from one predominant category in the first phase to four or more miniature categories in the third phase. The childâ s sandplay moved from primarily static play to increasingly dynamic play. Changes in the childâ s play are linked to changes in his living environment.
