But maybe you're wondering how the Sandtray Summit can help you do this?

How is this conference going to help you transform into a confident, connected sandtray therapist no matter where you are on your journey or in the world?

Good Question!

You’re going to do this through the 3 Step Sandtray Summit Success Path:

1) Register and Attend the Conference
When you show up, you’re claiming your place in the sandtray movement. You’re saying YES that I believe in the healing power of sandtray. Not only will you get 12 CE’s, but you’ll receive training tailored to YOU with like-minded therapists.
2) Increase Your Skills and Confidence

Because you’ll be training with the leaders in the sandtray space, you’ll know that you are learning the most cutting edge and creative ways sandtray therapy is being used throughout the world. After you train in those classes most important to you AND make connections with other sandtray nerds, you’ll leave feeling confident, refreshed and renewed.
3) Leave Transformed
Because this conference is more than just a note-taking marathon, you’re going to gain way more than just head knowledge. Through the many sandtrays that you’ll do over the 2 days of trainings, you’ll learn, at a feeling level, the power of sandtray for us all. Not only will you gain confidence in your sandtray skills, you’ll be able to clean off your own mirror through the power of doing your own sandtrays.

Wondering if this is worth the time, money and travel? 


Here's what some of our attendees from last year said...

I enjoyed the focus on self-care, making Sandtrays ( to clean off my mirror), met so many other Sandtray therapists, energizing, felt at home, and the speakers on trauma and autism were awesome. Amy taught on Brene Brown and being willing to get into the arena. The music and Sandtray Summit Staff were energizing and fun. We also took pictures with Amy Flaherty and speakers-and the hotel was beautiful and surrounded by nature. “10” for sure.

It was amazing to have the ability to walk into a room with like minded lovers of the sandtray! I didn’t run into any strangers and it was amazing.

I was struck with the little details that I could tell were put into making it extra special: the great seating, the individual "trays", the centerpieces on the table, the lunch spread etc. As CE chair of our state association, I was so impressed by the thoughtful production (in addition to the great presentations/information) and have even tried to incorporate some of those into our annual convention. See you in April!

What to Expect

Actionable Content

The Sandtray Therapy Summit is 2 full days of actionable, proven, strategic content from experts who have been in your shoes and have used sandtray therapy to transform themselves and their practices. 

This is no mere “conceptual thought” or “theoretical strategies” behind any of these sessions. Everything you hear at The Sandtray Summit are tested, proven techniques designed to create space for your clients to make more progress, faster and deeper through the power of sandtray therapy. 

You’ll walk out of the hotel at the end of Day 2 with notebooks full of actionable sandtray strategies that you can apply the second you get back to your sandtray practice.

Inspiration

It’s one thing to want to take your sandtray practice to the next level. It’s another to follow through and actually do it.

That’s why we have keynote speakers and breakout presenters who have actually done it. All presenters have used sandtray in their own practice to transform their everyday therapy practices.


You will leave The Sandtray Summit 2020 feeling inspired to take your sandtray practice to the next level, but most importantly, you’ll leave with a PLAN—a plan with how you will use sandtray therapy to transform your therapy practice, but more importantly a plan with a personal purpose to help you be the best sandtray therapist possible.

Networking & Fun

With attendees from all over the US (and world), you’ll meet people who have been in your shoes, who have faced the same problems you have, and who have overcome the same obstacles.

You’ll be among your people - sandtray therapists in schools, private practice, agencies and even traveling therapists!. Plus, we’ll help you break the ice (and break bread) with networking events, cool vendors, and interactive sandtrays in each session.


You will leave the Sandtray Summit 2020 having met, networked, and formed everlasting friendships with people just like you.
