Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy (STST) Level 1 is an accredited program that offers 60 Continuing Education Credits from Canadian Counselling Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and is also approved by American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT)
This family therapy program contains 10 days of experiential learning plus participants are expected to complete :
Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy (TST) 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.
STST processes are supported by recent therapeutic and neurobiological research. Evidence-based research supports therapeutic processes that are experiential, systemic, positively directional and change focused in providing neurological changes in clients. The model’s focus on the congruence of the therapist is supported in research supporting how important it is that therapists provide the conditions for attachment, hope, positive possibilities and safety in order for clients to achieve deep and lasting change.
The experiential processes provided by the training program give participants the opportunity to have both personal and professional growth. The program will provide several therapy demonstrations and skill development opportunities.
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.
