Foundation Training in Systemic Constellations, June – December 2019 (Year 1) in Bristol

A method both practical and profound.

This Foundation Training in Bristol offers an opportunity to develop a working understanding of a systemic constellation approach, which can be used to resolve personal, family and social issues. This course has been running for over 20 years and is a valued resource for those wishing to engage in personal and professional development; it provides a truly fresh perspective on yourself, your life, your work and the family and community groups to which you belong.

The Foundation Training may be undertaken as an independent course or as the first step in the wider CSC Advanced Professional Training.

Who is it for?

This course is for anybody who wishes to gain a fuller understanding, from a systemic constellation perspective, of the issues and concerns that they may have in their everyday life – this may be personal, familial or professional.

It is particularly relevant for professionals whose work brings them into contact with family and other social systems, for example:

•   Therapists, counsellors, health professionals and those in related fields

•   Teachers, social care professionals and those working with children and families, marginalized social groups and refugees

•   Those working in the field of substance abuse and in the criminal justice system

Constellation work acknowledges the importance of finding a place for each member of every human system, and with this principle at the heart of the methodology this approach both integrates with, and deepens, other resolution-oriented perspectives.

At this Foundation level the training is offered as an enrichment of existing practice and not as a qualification. CPD certificates will be given.

What will you learn?

This foundation year introduces participants to the underpinning principles and practice of the systemic approach originally developed by Bert Hellinger and others, with a particular focus on the family as our primary system. The emphasis is experiential, theoretical and practical. This training will establish an understanding of what it means to have a ‘systemic lens’ – or wider view, with supporting methodology, for finding resolution to deeply felt and seemingly intractable issues.

The course will cover the core concepts of systemic constellation work, both in groups and 1-1 contexts including:

The Field & The System

Including: the self as part of a system, the organising principles of systems, the primary system – parents and children and how families thrive; acknowledging the place of our ancestors; constellations as ritual.

What It Means To Work With Heart & Soul

Including: the definition of health; how does phenomenology help; somatic sensing and body based intelligence; stance; how to manage balance and reciprocity; fate, soul and the spirit, and what is asked of us when we help others; practitioner ethical impeccability.

How We Deal With Incoherence & Disorder

Including: when things go wrong; radical inclusion and the consequences of exclusion – atonement, identification and entanglement in issues that are not our own, and what needs to be done to put things right.

The course will also provide opportunities to constellate (with support) those issues that relate to your professional orientation.

Details of the teaching topics at each module is supplied in the Course Information Pack which you will receive once you have been accepted on the course.
