Why Play Therapy, Sandplay, and Expressive Therapies Work – Insights from Neuroscience

Betty Jackson, LSW, CST-T

From the early 1900’s on, therapists in the developing field of child psychotherapy intuitively understood the need for active, expressive, non-verbal modalities such as play therapy, art therapy, and Sandplay in the treatment of children, especially those who had experienced trauma. Early child clinicians accepted that the efficacy of non-verbal modalities had to do with expressive play being the child’s first, most natural “language”. While true, the revolution in neuroscience and brain-imaging techniques begun in the 1990’s has expanded our understanding of why it is true that non-verbal expressive modalities are in fact, essential in the treatment of childhood trauma. Drawing from the work of contemporary neuroscientists, this workshop will elucidate our understanding of how and why play therapy, expressive arts, and Sandplay modalities work.
