What are SandStory Skills®?
SandStory Skills® is a wonderful tool which supports practitioners in encouraging a child’s natural instinct for storytelling using sand, symbols, and other media.
While the storyteller expresses themselves freely, the practitioner is able to guide them to make their own connections between what they are unconsciously processing, and how that connects to their conscious mind, their current situation or a future event.
The method is based on the ‘Small World Technique’ developed by Margaret Lowenfeld, which encouraged children to express themselves non-verbally through play.
The 'Small World Technique' encouraged the development of many more theories surrounding ‘floor play’, ‘table-top play’ and ‘small world play.’ In recent years, Lara Kasza developed the technique 'SandStory Therapy® as a tool for Therapists to use with clients. SandStory Skills® is an adapted version of this technique for non-therapy professionals
