Welcome to NCRSS 

The Northern California Regional Sandplay Society is a hub for our community of therapists practicing, learning and teaching sandplay in California. We welcome you to become involved. NCRSS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to practice of and education in sandplay therapy.

Sandplay Therapy is a nonverbal therapeutic process that facilitates expression and integration of the deep contents of the psyche. A person’s inner world is revealed symbolically while creating an image in the sand, within a container, using objects and miniature figures.

NCRSS offers training in Sandplay Therapy taught by STA/ISST Certified Teaching members. Fall 2017-Spring 2018 classes are open for registration and include three Fundamentals of Sandplay courses held near Sacramento, in Humboldt County and Burlingame. Our Intermediate/advanced classes will be held in San Rafael and Burlingame. Each class includes 6 CE credits and several offer APT credits.

Looking for group or individual sandplay supervision and consultation? We’ve added an up to date listing by areas of northern California on the About page.
