Dear HKSTA members,

We would like to congratulate Ms Cheung Yee Ping Chris who has become the sixth locally trained Certified Sandplay Therapist in Hong Kong. Chris was certified by the ISST (International Society for Sandplay Therapy) as a certified member as of Nov 15, 2022.

In brief, the certification process includes (1) a personal process in sandplay therapy with an ISST member; (2) theoretical training of a minimum of 100 hours of participation in training seminars by ISST Teaching members in the tradition of Dora Kalff that is based on the principles of the psychology of C.G. Jung; (3) two written symbol papers; (4) 80 hours supervision of practical work in individual and group sessions; and (5) one completed written case study evaluated by three International ISST case readers.

Chris is an educational psychologist working in local primary and secondary schools. For years, she has participated in training in hypnotherapy, art therapy, play therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy. The therapeutic skills and symbolic thinking hatched by these training are incorporated widely in her daily work. Her interest in sandplay was ignited when she witnessed similar phenomena manifested in her clients’ sandtrays. Her curiosity led her to Dr. Alexander Esterhuyzen’s sandplay workshop in Hong Kong in 2018, with whom she also went through the personal process. She has been actively engaging in various sandplay and Jungian training locally and online ever since. Her major supervisors are Ms. Carina Conradie and Ms. Adelina Wong. She wrote about ‘Dog’ and ‘Clock’ as her symbol papers. Chris is serving as an executive committee member of HKSTA since 2020 to contribute to the promotion of sandplay therapy in Hong Kong. To pursue her dream of becoming a Jungian analyst, Chris is now a router in the IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology) Router Training Program.

HKSTA fully supports those who intend to become certified sandplay therapists. We will continue to offer programs and other means to facilitate the process.

Best Regards,

May Liu
