in combination with body-based trauma resolution
Being in touch with our deepest self, feeling, being felt, feeling real and alive, and experiencing intimacy in relationships are essential and existential needs of every human being. Often this connection is interrupted, whether by family systemic patterns, fates, traumatic experiences, relationship problems, physical issues or spiritual crises.
Traditional constellations are an effective means to find a new access to oneself and one’s life story, but they have their limits when it comes to traumatic experiences. In my opinion, system builders should be sensitive to body reactions and behaviors from a traumatic background in order to avoid retraumatization or a reinforcement of dissociation. This requires solid basic knowledge about systemic contexts as well as about trauma and trauma sequelae. The willingness of the facilitators to introspect, i.e. to observe their own psychological and physical processes and to engage in personal development, is an important prerequisite and an essential part of the course. Systemic constellations and body-based trauma resolution complement each other to form a new type of therapeutic tool that enables sustainable and comprehensive accompaniment of people in crises or phases of change. As facilitators we create a healing space of tenderness, slowness and connection.

Education in Systemic Constellations
EMR/ASCA compliant training series with Barbara Elisa Brantschen
Level 1 – 10 last 3 days each, Level 11 – 13 4 days each.
Level 1 – 10: Competence on self-experience level (certificate)
Levels 1 – 10 focus on acquiring basic knowledge about systemic contexts, constellations, trauma and trauma-related symptoms. Body awareness is sensitized and trained through specific exercises. Reflection on one’s own family system is an essential part of this. The theory is deepened and the knowledge is expanded through specialized literature. The practice of own constellations is given a lot of space. Self-awareness, self-resourcefulness and personal experience are also central in this part.
for the certificate as a recommendation:
– at least 2 individual sessions
– 1 additional open seminar
– 20 practice sessions with short documentation and reflection: companion exercises, companion awareness; body-based tools (pendulum, screening, working through the body); systemic constellations: Family, Ego-States, Generations, Couples.
Graduation with certificate
The degree includes a written paper on a topic to be determined individually, a written examination unit and an oral examination unit.
Level 11 – 13 (Advanced): Competence at practical level (diploma).
Participation in Level 11 – 13 possible in the following year after completion of Level 1 – 10. The levels are cross-course, i.e. open to all who have completed the course up to level 10. The assessment interview to clarify the suitability can already take place from level 5. Essentially, these three seminars are about intensive practical training and a deepening and broadening of competencies. The systemic constellation work based on polyvagal theory, the non-invasive accompaniment, the rooting in one’s own resources and the perception via the body are professionalized. The tools of body-based trauma work are deepened and fully integrated into the accompaniment work. Systemic family constellation, generational constellation and ego-state constellation are solidified as a foundation. Skill enhancement includes pair constellation and constellation with work teams. Leading group constellations is taught and specifically promoted according to individual orientation; working with figures remains an essential tool. The practical work is closely accompanied and evaluated, self-reflection continues to be anchored as a supporting element.
for the diploma as compulsory:
– at least 4 individual sessions
– 2 additional open seminar
– 2 practice days
– 20 practice sessions with short documentation and reflection: companion exercises, companion awareness; body-based tools (anchoring, pendulum, screening, working through the body);
systemic constellations: Family, Ego-States, Generations, Couples; Literature: 3 books on which the training is based (choice after consultation).
Graduation with diploma
The diploma is awarded through careful evaluation from observation and with the inclusion of the protocols of experience.
