I have a particular interest in trauma and sensori-motor responses (body memories) and as part of my Masters Degree in Play Therapy I did an exploratory study into "The non-verbal therapeutic process involved in the use of sandplay with Looked After Children, who have undergone a traumatic experience before the age of four".
