A strong ego is necessary to equip a person to face his/her overwhelming unconscious during stressful situation. Therefore; the ego strengthening of the psyche is an important natural phase in one’s psychotherapy. The strengthening involves both the constructive and the deconstructive aspects of the psychic work. The patient will manifest ego defenses to detail from the therapeutic process. The presenter will use the sand pictures of patients to illustrate how the constructive and destructive cycle appeared in their sand playing works; and how the resulting strong ego enable the patient to face the liminal phase of the transformative process.
