Practitioners and Event Listing on The ConstellationFlow Website
These listings are designed to assist people to find constellation work in Australia and New Zealand, as well as seminal events overseas.
Because of the registration criteria for the lists IAG referral list, we believe that these practitioners are highly trained and very experienced in constellation work. We use this information to encourage our own Australian practitioners (and unregistered visiting practitioners from overseas) to further develop their training.
Amongst other things we ask practitioners to have attended at least 12 days of workshops facilitated by DGfS- IAG listed practitioners and also to have been exposed to the work of at least 6 of these practitioners. The 12 days will be increased to 16 at the end of 1995 and 20 at the end of 1996. We use this information to decide who we are ready to list as a practitioner on the ConstellationFlow website and therefore whose events we can also list. Other requirements to be listed on the ConstellationFlow website can be found here.
This process does not guarantee the competence or integrity of practitioners listed on the ConstellationFlow website. Nor does it mean that those not listed are inadequate. We cover this in our practitioner disclaimer:
The provision of information about practitioners on this website does not constitute an endorsement by Chris Walsh or ConstellationFlow. It is merely a provision of information about where work based on Hellinger's "Orders of Love" can be found in Australia & New Zealand. Nor can ConstellationFlow guarantee the accuracy of the information as it is based on information provided to us by the practitioners concerned. Nonetheless we do our best to provide useful and accurate information. If anyone has reason to believe any of this information is not correct please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Up to date as of August 2004. Check for any recent changes here.
Members of the IAG are often asked for referrals to competent practitioners of Family Constellations and movements of the soul. Additionally, many counselors, psychotherapists and consultants seek opportunities for training in this method. In order to meet these needs and also to assure a level of competence, the IAG maintains a list of practitioners who meet criteria established by the Association. It is not the intention of the IAG to establish universal criteria for all practitioners of Family Constellations as developed by Bert Hellinger nor to exercise control over Family Constellation work beyond inclusion on the IAG referral list. We explicitly affirm the right of anyone to work with the approach developed by Bert Hellinger according to his or her competence and within his or her personal responsibility.
The referral list of the International Bert Hellinger Association for Systemic Resolution was established in March, 2001. The list is available on the internet, and is sent to anyone requesting it.
These requirements are less stringent than those of IAG, reflecting the relative youth of the work here in Australia and New Zealand. Like the IAG, we are not trying to establish universal criteria for all practitioners of Family Constellations as developed by Bert Hellinger nor to exercise control over Family Constellation work beyond inclusion on the ConstellationFlow website. We explicitly affirm the right of anyone to work with the approach developed by Bert Hellinger according to his or her competence and within his or her personal responsibility.
The purpose of these requirements is twofold. Firstly, they act as an encouragement to practitioners to actively engage in their own professional development in constellation work. Secondly, they help the public to have a little more confidence in the events and practitioners they find listed here. The requirements are:
If practitioners do not meet these criteria they may be considered for listing if they work in an area isolated from practitioners who do, and if they show a commitment to attaining these benchmarks.
We also want to know if practitioners have a reputation for integrity in the way they facilitate constellations as well as the way they organise their work. This includes the way they recruit clients and their integrity with money and promotion of their events. Nonetheless, it is impossible to be certain of any of these things, which is why we have the practitioner disclaimer.
