Self-Experience: Playing with Sand/Witnessing in Silence

Monica Pinilla (SCAJ), Eva Pattis Zoja (ÖGAP - CIPA), Philippa Colinese (SAAJA), John Gosling (SAAJA) & María Claudia Munévar Molano (SCAJ)

Since 2008 an international team of Jungian analysts have been developing Expressive Sandwork, a structured intervention by volunteers for children in situations of social vulnerability. This 3-hour workshop will be conducted in a group setting structured as follows: a. Brief theoretical introduction. b. Break out into pairs: one person will be a player; the other a witness, and then roles are switched. c. The player engages in free play in a sandbox with a wide choice of culturally relevant available miniatures while the witness observes in silence. d. Both experiences will be shared in small groups facilitated by one of the co-leaders (English or Spanish).
