This study aimed to explore whether sandplay therapy could offer an effective psychological intervention for middle school students with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We conducted sandplay therapy on six occasions with second-grade middle school students with PTSD and subsequently observed a significant decrease in their PTSD total scores. Our follow-up assessments of the subjects six months later showed that the related indicators remained within an acceptable range. Based on these results, we have concluded that sandplay therapy offers an effective psychological intervention for teenagers with PTSD.
