What, Why and How: Sandplay Certification and Writing Papers

We know the story: you are a dedicated sandplay therapist wondering how to climb the mountain of certification. From the bottom, the peak is hidden in the clouds. The way appears rough. You feel flickers of doubt, confusion, overwhelmed - just when do you even find the time, energy or the resources to pursue certification? And who is there to help and guide?

This Sandplay Salon is sponsored by the NCRSS Board of Directors to offer members practical information, suggestions and community support for those wishing to become a CST. Who should attend?
