Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy (STST) Level I training program is for practicing counsellors and therapists, and for other helping professionals who are presently working with clients. The focus of the program is on learning and practicing Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy to bring about deep and lasting change with individuals, couples and families.
This program is very experiential, with lecturettes, small group discussions, structured exercises, demonstrations, and skill practice sessions as part of the training. Participants will be required to work in triads between sessions to practice what they have been learning in the program.
Satir’s Transformational Systemic Therapy Model (STST) is unique in encompassing both the intrapsychic and interactive components of therapy. Much therapy of the past has been focused only on clients’ behaviour, cognition or affect. This model is focused on the whole human being, bringing about transformational change by tapping the internal resources and universal yearnings of individuals within their personal, family, and social systems. The process requires that the therapist has a high level of therapeutic competence and congruence.
THIS PROGRAM WILL HELP COUNSELLORS AND THERAPISTS: Use experiential process throughout their therapy sessions to access healing Life Energy Explore and facilitate change in clients’ intrapsychic and relational systems Make contact with clients’ internal experience and create safety quickly and deeply Surface clients’ survival communication and coping patterns and help clients experientially choose more positive possibilities Collaboratively with the client, begin to set positively directional, intrapsychic therapeutic goals for change Help clients access, accept and utilize their internal strengths and resources in the change process Map the internal processes of clients and help them access and change their behaviours, feelings, perceptions and expectations Help clients integrate and maintain their changes.
Professionally, my practice has been both affirmed and at the same time elevated to a whole new level. The approach which has been so elegantly modeled, has a flexibility which has allowed me to easily and effortlessly intertwine my existing modalities in counselling, hypnotherapy, Timeline Therapy, EFT and NLP.
Was it intense? Absolutely. Was it the best learning experience I’ve ever had? Undoubtedly.
From the core model and it’s use in managing you’re your own state as a therapist, to the breath-taking organic process of the Iceberg (the name of the core model) for clients, it’s been such a multi-dimensional journey. I have deepened my awareness of the pivotal pieces in taking my therapy practice to a whole new level.
