Supervision of Sandplay Therapy, the first book on this subject, is an internationally-based volume that describes the state of the art in supervision of sandplay therapy. Recognizing that practitioners are eager to incorporate sandplay therapy into their practice, Harriet Friedman and Rie Rogers Mitchell respond to the need for new information, and successfully translate the theories of sandplay therapy into supervision practice.
The book provides a meaningful connection and balance between theoretical principles, practical application, and ongoing therapeutic encounter involved in sandplay. Divided into six sections, contributors cover:
Supervision of Sandplay Therapy expands the vision of what is possible in supervision and will be vital reading for those studying supervision and sandplay therapy, as well as for those wanting to provide a depth-oriented approach during supervision.
"This splendid series breaks new ground in its depth, breadth and scope, guided by Joy Schaverien’s recognition that the time is right for a comprehensive, multi-faceted study of supervision in the arts psychotherapies. With each volume, the reader is invited to imagine, explore, and reflect on the expressive qualities of a particular art form in clinical supervision, turning special attention to art, music, dance, drama, and sandplay through contributions by leading experts from different parts of the world. These five volumes will make a lasting contribution as essential reading for supervisors and supervisees across the psychotherapies. The series also contributes toward a deeper understanding of the mentor-student relationship and the healing power of the arts." - Joan Chodorow, Jungian analyst and former President of the American Dance Therapy Association, USA
"This new series of Supervision in the Arts Therapies is both timely and necessary. Now that all the arts therapies are established as State Registered professions in their own right, there is a lack of resources which can support both the more advanced practitioner and the student. The writers of these individual titles are leaders in their respective fields both as researchers and practitioners. These publications make very important and innovative steps, and should be read by everyone in related fields of work." - Dr Sue Jennings, Consultant Dramatherapist and Supervisor
"Each volume will not only communicate across the arts therapies but also to colleagues in other psychotherapies and health professions, to our mutual benefit." - Diane Waller, Goldsmiths College University of London, President of the British Association of Art Therapists, UK
"Supervision of Sandplay Therapy is invaluable in terms of exploration the expansion of the use of sandplay in a rapidly changing world….This book is an essential addition to libraries of sandplay supervisors." - Lydia S. Lennihan, associate member of Sandplay Therapist of America in Journal of Sandplay Therapy - Volume XVII, Number 1, 2008

This innovative series comprises five edited volumes, each focusing on one of the arts therapies — art, music, drama, dance or sandplay — and reflects on the dynamic nature of the presentation of that art form in supervision.
Supervision in the Arts Therapies Series makes a timely contribution to the literature and will be essential reading for experienced practitioners and students of the arts therapies as well as psychotherapists and other professionals engaged in supervision.
