Expressive Sandwork for Ukrainian refugees in Italy
CIPA Italy has, via a very generous donation, started a help project where volunteers and psychoanalysts, both Italian and Ukrainian, are doing Expressive Sandwork for Ukrainian refugees. Dr. Eva Pattis, a Jungian psychoanalyst for adults and children, established this method on the basis of C.G. Jung’s Analytical Psychology and Sandplay Therapy developed by Jungian pupil, Dora Kalf. The Expressive Sandwork is applied in a setting of volunteers, offering a safe space for the participants to feel safe to play. CIPA aims at building a network all over Italy providing Expressive Sandwork in the reception centres which host children and adults from Ukraine.
