The Love and Hate of Sibling Relationships: online workshop 


with Chris Williams

Given the importance of siblings in the life of families and our psyche, it is surprising that they are given little attention and thought in personal development work, including in systemic constellation work. Whether loving and supportive, tense and stressful or a a roller coaster of dynamics in between – sibling relationships are a key fabric of our familial system. 

In this 3 hour online workshop Chris enables participants to explore their sibling dynamics, be they in nuclear or blended families. He addresses missing siblings and the trans-generational dynamics that might play out and how all of it impacts on work and our place in other social groups.

Who is it for?

This event  is open to anyone who wishes to attend to their own, or client, sibling dynamics, including those who are an only child.
It is part of our Continuing Professional Development series and does not constitute a training in Systemic Constellation Work. CSC considers a formal training of at least 30 days to be the minimum requirement for practice.


What you will learn/develop

We will dive deep into the hidden dynamics of sibling relationships; the archetypes in our cultures; how we overlay the sibling matrix onto our social and work groups; how we may carry earlier generation-sibling dynamics into our own sibling relationships. We will explore what is needed to unlock the knots that create tensions, rivalries, unrealistic expectations, imbalances etc.

Chris will be covering how parents shape our sibling dynamics, including when being an only child, or with siblings who died, siblings who never came (miscarriages and abortions), and vanished twins. And how all of these shapes our social world through our lives. We will look at both the therapeutic and systemic challenges, with a particular examination of the Orders of Love.  

Course Date 

This online event will be held online on Friday 6th of September from 1430 to 1730 British Summer Time (BST)
