For this study the researcher conducted sandplay therapy with a client who exhibited passive-aggressive behavior due to his difficulty in emotional regulation. After a total of 34 sessions, the client was better able to regulate and express emotions and his mother developed efficacy in her parenting. His mother had experienced severe anger and depression when she was pregnant with the client. The mother’s depression lasted after childbirth. She did not seem emotionally interactive with the client and only provided basic care for him. The theme of the client’s sandplay mainly dealt with his mother’s anger. Sandplay therapy initially proceeded very slowly, in a passive client’s pattern. As the sandplay therapy progressed, the client’s self and ego became stronger at dealing with anger issues related to his mother. His emotional problems were able to be adjusted.
