Like play therapy with young children, sandtray therapy provides an experience that is active, nonverbal, indirect, and symbolic. However, many older clients are able to stay with emotions and feel vulnerable to an extent if they trust the therapist to a significant degree and their own inner experiencing to an extent. One important goal of the processing phase of humanistic sandtray therapy is to facilitate a process that begins in the scene creation phase of sandtray and continues in the processing phase of sandtray. The scene creation phase, in which clients arrange their miniatures in the tray, is very important and is central to the sandtray therapy experience. In humanistic sandtray therapy, the processing phase helps clients to focus on the sandtray scene and their inner experiencing as they explore their scene. Throughout the processing phase of sandtray, clients look at their scene and experience the impact of it.
