Sandplay Therapy in Vulnerable Communities offers a new method of therapeutic care for people in acute crisis situations such as natural disasters and war, as well as the long-term care of children and adults in areas of social adversity including slums, refugee camps and high-density urban areas. This book provides detailed case studies of work carried out in South Africa, China and Columbia and combines practical discussions of individual sandplay projects with brief overviews of their sociohistoric background. Further topics covered include: - the social aspect of psychoanalysis - the importance of play - pictographic writing and the psyche. Providing the reader with clear, practical instructions for carrying out their own sandplay project, this bookwill be essential reading not only for psychotherapists involved with sandplay therapy but also for those with an interest in cross cultural psychotherapy, as well as all professionals working with those in situations of social adversity.
