I learned a lot from this training, and was once again shocked by the rapid and profound effects of NSST. Madeleine's attention to the body in the whole process impressed me, especially how to stay in the metaphor, pull the client back to the present moment by asking about feelings, and tune with client by breathing, etc. Thank you again for the opportunity to participate.Read Less

Excerpts from Madeleine's Recent Paper
“... developed a way of working in the sand tray that she called “Neuroscience and Satir in the Sand Tray” (NSST; De Little, 2017, 2019a, 2019b). This is a comprehensive way of working with both children and adults using figurines in the sand tray combined with the latest research in neuroscience and an updated application of Virginia Satir’s psychotherapeutic approach.``
“The NSST approach is founded on the belief that therapy has to allow for the implicit, unconscious expression of the right-brain self-system, and the sand tray facilitates this process through the creation of symbols and pictures of the unconscious, implicit right-brain system.”
“... introducing the term novel metaphor. A figurine needs no explanation as a metaphor for part of the client’s internal world, but a novel metaphor does require explanation. A novel metaphor is an unconventional, unfamiliar, and unique image and concept outside of conscious awareness. Novel metaphors resonate with stored energy patterns that have no words in the embodied mind."
