A3: Moving Forward Together with Integrity: Code of Ethics for Constellation Practitioners
Presenters: Ursula Franke and Lisa Iversen
Many fields of western healing practices (e.g. social workers, physicians, therapists) have codes of ethics to guide sound, ethical practice of the healing modality.
The beauty and challenge of the ways in which constellation work is embraced by practitioners who come from diverse fields, from western therapeutic modalities to shamanic practice and many more, make it easy to avoid wrestling with the complex questions related to competency, ethics, and inclusion.
This conference offers a rare opportunity to be together with these questions in an embodied way.
This conversation led by Lisa Iversen and Ursula Franke explores development of a code of ethics for constellation practitioners and teachers in the U.S. The code of ethics developed by Tanja Meyburgh and her students during trainings in Family Constellations Africa, an organization co-created by Ursula, will be used to launch this facilitated conversation.
Join other practitioners, teachers, and supporters of systemic family constellations who care about tending to the complex field of balancing sound, ethical practice with inclusion as this work grows in the U.S.
D2: Encounters with Death and the Power of Presence
Presenters: Ursula Franke-Bryson, PhD and Thomas Bryson
Thomas Bryson and Dr. Franke-Bryson combine broad therapeutic skills with heart, intelligence and power. Their work has a conceptual framework of systemic thinking, body centered trauma therapy and the power of presence. Throughout human history encounters with death and human responses to the reality of death have been at the core of evolutionary psychology. This is ultimately reflected in all of the issues which clients present in therapy. The power of presence is an overlooked, yet easily available resource for clients and therapists alike to approach the difficult, unfinished subjects in their biographies and in their systemic lineages. This experiential workshop will explore first hand how to learn and apply the resource of presence in a controlled, safe and fun environment, which is then easily transferable to therapeutic situations of all sorts.
