The girl' heroine's journey is distinct from a boy's heroic journey in sandplay therapy. A Therapist's Guide to Mapping the Girl Heroine's Journey in Sandplay highlights crucial aspects of these journeys through the Sandplay Journey Map and assists clinicians to gain perspective on the girl's journey towards self-confidence, mastery of challenging tasks of psychological development and behavioral competence. Mapping this journey with the mandala form, provides beginning as well as seasoned therapists a means of strengthening therapists' clinical acuity and overall perspective on individual casework as well as in the complexity of clinical dynamics of the girl's journey throughout the therapeutic process. Grounded in practical application and examples, readers are guided through each stage of the journey. Two clinical case studies, a compelling heroine's tale, and experiential exercises illustrate and complement the mandala mapping practice therapeutically.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Through personal and clinical stories, Rosalind Heiko enlivened and engaged me in A Therapist's Guide to the Girl Heroine's Journey in Sandplay. The flow of a "journey" in sandplay provides a compelling narrative. Her exploration of the symbol of the gate for liminal transitional space, the amplification of the fairy tale of Vasilisa that unpacks critical aspects of the tale and her description of the "sandplay journey map" were all were absorbing and vital. This book reads like a long story that one might listen to around a fire that illuminates the room. The book is enriched with Heiko's references and poetry. I recommend this book to clinicians interested in a template for the girl's heroine journey as seen in unfolding images and symbols in sandplay. -- Lauren Cunningham, Jungian analyst, founding member of Sandplay Therapists of America and the founding editor of the Journal of Sandplay Therapy.
This is an exciting book that will capture the imagination of child and play therapy practitioners at all levels of experience written by a highly experienced, compassionate, and astute clinician. -- David A. Crenshaw, PhD, clinical director of the Children's Home of Poughkeepsie, coeditor with Anne Stewart of Play Therapy: A Comprehensive Guide to Theory and Practice, and coeditor with Cathy Malchiodi of Creative Arts and Play Therapy for Attachment Problems
