The purpose of this study was to determine whether sandplay therapy through elementary school visits is effective in improving the social skills and peer relationships of children from low-income families. The subjects were selected from five elementary schools that agreed to participate in the study. Based on the results, the positive effects of sandplay therapy through school visits on the sociality of children from low-income families were verified. The results were consistent with those of previous studies that reported sandplay therapy enhanced children's self-expression and social skills. Further studies would benefit from the inclusion of parental and teacher counseling if the therapy program is to be offered in schools by visiting counselors.
