The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of sandplay therapy on the level of psychological well-being of college students. The nine subjects who had wanted to find their psychological homeostasis participated in the sandplay therapy program and the eleven subjects who had interests in self-exploration and mental health participated in the self-exploration program. Both groups of subjects had completed the self-report pre-post questionnaires related to perceived subjective well-being, psychological acceptance, and positive thinking. The scores obtained from both pre-post questionnaires were compared with each other and analyzed with SPSS WIN v. 20. Differences were evident in the levels of each scale after the programs were concluded. In the sandplay therapy group, significant differences were evident in several scales, whereas no significant difference was evident in the self-exploration group. Thus, sandplay therapy enhanced the general perceived level of subjective well-being, psychological acceptance, and positive thinking of the subjects.
