Systemic Constellations Facilitator Coaching & Training Programs
We maintain this program as an example of our typical course structure. Each new course changes in small details to match the group it aims to serve. One difference is that we will not offer CEUs in the future.

OUR APPROACH TO TRAINING:
The Human Systems Institute offers a training and coaching program for professionals who wish to include the ability to facilitate Systemic Constellations in their repertoire. Our training programs are either 6 months or one year in length and provide students with coaching, training and on-going support in their development as facilitators of this unique and powerful method of working with human systems.
Facilitation is partly an art, partly skillful application of known principles and practices. There are many aspects to facilitating Systemic Constellations well. This is called a training and coaching program because there is an emphasis on personalized development of the individual student's ability to facilitate Systemic Constellations.
bring differing skills and abilities,
personal and professional issues to the program. They have their own
goals for being in the program and
desired application for the work. In this past year's program, for
example, we had physicians, social
workers and an organizational development specialist. One student was
participating in the program as
part of healing a chronic illness, another as part of developing
skills to facilitate TaKeTiNa circles.
This diversity of viewpoints and backgrounds provides a rich ground
for the exploration of Systemic
receives individualized coaching to enable
them to resolve any challenges they may face in becoming an excellent
facilitator and to enhance their
strengths in this role. By using a coaching model, we encourage
interaction and dialog with both the
program facilitator and the other students. Program size is limited
to 12 students to maximize the
opportunity for these learning interactions. The goal of the coaching
program is to bring together a
small, diverse, highly qualified group of students who engage each
other and the work in depth. Specific
coaching and training is provided in three areas:
These are the Orders of Love
and other common tendencies in family systems that have been so
beautifully articulated by Bert Hellinger
and others. A sound knowledge of these principles provides a
foundation for approaching the constellation
Through lecture and experiential
exercises students will learn useful models of managing group
dynamics, develop a process level
understanding of constellations, learn to manage their own and
others' states, develop a phenomenological
stance and much more. Developing clean perceptual skills is also an
important element in facilitating
skillfully. There will be many exercises designed to enhance your
perceptual awareness of other human
beings and of groups.
Self-Awareness. Through home exploration
opportunities and experiential exercises, students have the
opportunity to discover their own biases,
personal and professional issues which might prevent them from
facilitating cleanly. Exercises such as
"Yourself as Victim", "The Stories We Tell", and
others allow students to face
themselves in the mirror of this work as they engage in the study of
Systemic Constellations. The study
of this work is a life time path of learning and exploration.
Supervision. Doing is one of the best ways of learning. To this end, students
are offered four full supervision
days and the opportunity to lead a Constellation Study Group
offered through the Institute, and to
facilitate constellations with the supervision of the program
facilitator. An emphasis on high quality
peer feedback in a safe and supportive environment is part of
this section of the program. We often
learn the most from watching our peers as they learn.
In addition, an
on-going supervision group will likely be
offered for students who have completed the basic program. This will
give students an opportunity to
facilitate constellations under the supervision of the Institute's
director, to receive feedback and to
continue to develop their skills in a safe and supportive setting.
We are deeply
grateful to Bert Hellinger, Hunter
Beaumont, Gunthard Weber and many others for discovering and developing the body of knowledge we call Systemic Constellations. Deeply engaging with this work is a life changing process. This path is open to those who follow Love and support Life.
