Austin Sandtray Association
by Hannah Milford, MA, LPC, LCDC, RPT on August 3rd, 2014

    I’m so excited to announce that I have been elected the secretary of the Austin Sandtray Association!  Joining ASTA has been a great experience. I have been able to connect and share ideas with other sandtray therapists in Austin. We meet the third Friday of every month to discuss business and gain CEU credit through sandtray education. Join our August meeting where I will be presenting, Counseling and Creativity: Making Sandtray Miniatures.
   If you use sandtray therapy in your practice, you understand how hard it can be to find those certain miniatures. Learn how to complete your sandtray collection with this artistic demonstration. Gain hands on experience working with clay. As well as, tips and tricks for making unique miniatures to add to your personal sandtray collection.

Licensed mental health therapist and counseling students are
welcome to attend this presentation.

I am a retired school counselor with a Master's in Counseling. I am interesting in being trained in play therapy and sand play therapy So I can offer this privately in my area. I had a tutoring service at one time ( I am also a Master Reading Teacher). I found that many of the students that were doing poorly in school were also suffering from emotional issues. Does you organization train people in these areas of counseling?
