Dr. Madeleine De Little has been a student for twelve years of ‘Transformational Systemic Therapy’. She is currently the research chair of the Satir Institute of the Pacific in Canada and a faculty member of the Banmen Satir China Management Centre. Her studies of the latest developments in neuroscience and transformational change have led her to develop a unique model of sand tray therapy and write a book, Where Words Can’t Reach – Neuroscience and the Satir Model in the Sand Tray.
Madeleine has been an elementary and high school for 28 years and continues to be a therapist in private practice and an international trainer in her model of sand tray work. The research for her Ph.D. focused on the personal and professional impact on student therapists learning and practicing this model of sand tray therapy.
