CUSTTAD had its beginnings on HAIDA GWAII, a group of islands off the north west coast of Canada. It was developed in the east end of GLASGOW and achieved its present form in a community-based NHS clinic in the north west of that same city


CUSTTAD is about creating conditions which are conducive to children sharing their concerns if and when they feel able or inclined to do so. And, having accessed those concerns, CUSTTAD is about making all possible efforts to support the child in the task of addressing them, as speedily and as effectively as possible*


CUSTTAD draws on some of the well-tried and tested practices of art, play and child psychotherapy. It places particular emphasis on the inter-related use of sand trays and a procedure called Talk and Draw. CUSTTAD is an acronym for the Combined Use of Sand Trays and Talk And Draw


The practice of CUSTTAD takes place with a child and a trained worker in a room specially resourced and dedicated for the purpose


CUSTTAD  is particularly suited to children between the ages of five and eleven but some older and some younger children also find it useful


CUSTTAD is a non-profit making organization. Its development and implementation are overseen by a group which includes a Head Teacher, a Principal teacher, a Behaviour Support worker, a Senior Family Therapist and a Consultant Child Psychiatrist
