'I have found the book to be an excellent sandplay primer
text for students of sandplay and would highly recommend it for
teaching and training purposes. It is a stimulating and well
integrated blend of Kay Bradway's many years of clinical practice
as an analyst as well as her salient observations and insights on
Kalfian sandplay therapy.' - Mary Jane Markell,
