SandStory Skills® Training.
SandStory Skills® is a wonderfully creative and gentle tool to add to your repertoire. Designed for those supporting wellbeing in educational settings, this course allows practitioners to bring the powerful elements of sand, symbols and storytelling to their work. Perhaps you are working with young people who have experienced multiple challenges in their lives, or perhaps the children you support struggle to articulate their feelings?
SandStory Skills® transcends verbal communication and gives children and young people a voice and an opportunity to tell their "story". SandStory Skills® is not a therapy but provides a session structure which ensures practitioners are working safely and respectfully within the remit of their role. These skills harness the child's natural instinct to engage in playful storytelling and gives practitioners confidence to understand and support the storytelling process.
