Welcome to the homepage for the World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals!
We are excited to have you join our international community of sand therapy professionals.
The World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals (WASTP) is a 501c (3) membership organization that was founded in 2019. It was created to support the integrity and ethical practice of sand therapy and to support greater access to sand therapy training throughout the world. WASTP honors the use of sand therapy from a diverse variety of clinical theoretical orientations.
The World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals exists to promote integrity and ethical practice in the therapeutic use of sand. The association is inclusive of a variety of clinical theoretical orientations, provides links to clinical training and resources, promotes research regarding outcomes utilizing sand therapy, provides a community for sand therapy practitioners and encourages a commitment to ongoing learning.
As we build our organization, we want you to be a part of our community. Membership will allow you to have a voice in the creation of the organization as well as opportunities to serve on committees that are being developed. In addition to this, you will have access to the semi-annual on-line journal, discounts on conference fees, educational materials and videos. We hope that you value the mission of our organization and choose to become part of this historic association today!
It is our goal to provide foundation understanding and knowledge regarding sand therapy so we can spend the weekend of our virtual conference going into depth on a variety of sand therapy topics. Please join us for our monthly Sand Seminar Series.
