The Moving Stories Method

The Moving Stories Method is an an intermodal expressive arts method that integrates story, sandtray and play therapy.  Therapeutic stories are told with the aid of a Moving Stories kit and a sandtray as the “theater”.  Moving Stories kits are baskets or decorated boxes that contain miniatures/symbols that are used to tell the story. Individual clients, families, groups or classes from pre-school age to old age are then invited to reflect upon the stories followed by an invitation to respond in their own creative way.
