To become an Internationally Credentialed Sandtray Therapist (ICST), you must train under an Approved Provider (ICST-P) recognized through the IAST.
The number of providers is directly related to the number of members for the IAST, meaning that as membership in IAST grows, so does the number of providers that will be available.
Currently, we have a total of seven providers (six within the US).
Current membership numbers do not allow for any new ICST-P’s within the US, but we do have openings for those outside of the US. For more information, see the Provider Standards here.
All providers operate as a separate business and take different approaches to how each fulfills the requirements determined by IAST.
For example, some Approved Providers provide the complete training needed to become an ICST, while others offer levels individually.
Minimum prices for what the ICST-P must charge is regulated and determined by the IAST.
Please check out information provided below for each ICST-P. Each utilizes different strengths and areas of specialty to provide a variety of specializations while maintaining the core training tenets of the IAST.
If you are interested in training with the ICST-P, please contact each through the information provided below.
The IAST does not contact providers directly regarding potential trainees. All of that information is handled between those wishing to attend and the provider.
