Now Accepting Board Member Applications

Dear World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals Members:

We are  recruiting additional Board Members.

WASTP exists to promote the 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, diversity, and promotion of anti-racism and social justice. 

As an international organization, we strive to have a board of directors as diverse as our practices of sand therapy. We encourage members of all backgrounds to apply. Please see Board Member Description  for more Information.

Please see the attached application, which will go to our Nominating Committee. Applications can be sent to

New board members come on for 1 year term and would be voted on for three additional 3 year terms, which helps stagger the terms of Board Members. We meet once a month for 2 hours on Sundays; and Committee participation varies in terms of time per month depending upon which Committee new members participate.  We hope you will consider applying! We will contact you regarding an interview after the application is completed.  Thank you for your interest in sand therapy!
