Destruction and Creation in the Fertile Fields of Sandplay
24th Congress of the International Society of Sandplay Therapy
Sponsored by Sandplay Therapists of America (Hawaii) and Instituto Brasileiro de Terapia de Sandplay
CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
Date: July 19-23, 2017
Location: Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
We have the pleasure to invite you to participate and submit a proposal for our next international meeting- the 24th ISST Congress. The Congress will be held on the Big Island of Hawaii, home to Kilauea Volcano. Here, the cycle of destruction and creation is visible as fiery lava makes its way to the ocean creating new earth.
Our main idea for the ISST Congress is to explore sandplay as a therapeutic process that allows primitive and archetypal life forms to come to the surface fertilizing and enriching new ways of being. We welcome presentations that raise our skills and knowledge about new developments in theory and clinical practice of sandplay. We will exchange ideas via informal and formal presentations, experiential workshops, and discussions in order to establish local and international networks for research and improvements of our clinical abilities.
Themes of interest
Cross-cultural myth, symbol and stories about destruction and creation
The shadow in sandplay
Trauma of development, posttraumatic stress and resilience
Neurosciences and psychotherapy
Transference and counter transference
Abstracts are sought on topics related to the themes of interest, but submissions on a wide range of topics relevant to the field of sandplay are welcome.
