The following training providers are listed below (in alphabetical order) so that you can choose who is the best fit with your theoretical orientation.  The World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals serves as a resource to assist you in finding training but does not endorse trainers at the present time.  If you provide training and would like to be listed on this page, please contact us at sandtherapypros@gmail.com.

Presently, there is no formal credential for sand therapy with the exception of individual theoretical certifications.  For example, Sandplay, Theresa Kestly and Rita Grayson all offer certifications in their respective training modalities.  A long range goal of the World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals is to develop a credential that would  allow clinicians to receive training from a variety of trainers while working to earn a credential that demonstrates proficiency in the ethical practice of sand therapy.  This is a lengthy process that will include feedback from top trainers and clinicians and eventually lead to a credential that can be international in scope.
