“Orme. Sandplay Therapy Online” is an independent magazine, coordinated with the website of the Italian Association for Sandplay Therapy (AISPT), developed according to the principles of open-access scientific research, using the full potential of the internet for the sharing and dissemination of knowledge. The material in this magazine is therefore available for the personal use of users, according to a creative commons license.
Orme is a tool, a space and a thread.
Orme is a tool for communication not only to members of the Italian Association for Sandplay Therapy (AISPT) but to all members of the Sandplay Therapy societies of the International Society for Sandplay Therapy (ISST) and to all doctors, psychologists, psychotherapists and students, who for various reasons, are interested in analytical psychology and in particular analytic practice with Sandplay Therapy.
Orme is a space for articles, contributions and reflections that foster an exchange of knowledge and experience of theoretical and clinical Sandplay Therapy at a national and international level.
Orme is a thread to unite scholars, clinicians, students and all those who want further studies into the use of images and play applied to analytical and depth psychology according to the principles of Carl Gustav Jung.
Publishing two issues per year of about ten articles, the magazine has a structure similar to that of a blog, headed by the most recent articles with older ones following below. Considering the length (about 10 pages) and complexity of articles, they are summarized on the homepage in terms of “title, image, abstract” and accompanied by a “read more” link to see the full text.
All abstracts are readable by any user of the site but a restricted area is reserved for articles with contributions relating to clinical cases and accompanied by photographs of sand images. Access to the restricted area is automatic for AISPT and ISST members but otherwise limited to registered doctors, psychologists and others with precise scientific reasons who have requested and been granted permission from the Editorial Board. Each article page features the ability to print the document and has a version in English.
