What is the purpose of these listings?

These listings are designed to assist people to find constellation work in Australia and New Zealand, as well as seminal events overseas.


Why are some Practitioners and their Events highlighted?

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:


ConstellationFlow 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 info@cwalsh.com.au

Criteria for the International Bert Hellinger Association for Systemic Resolution (IAG)

Up to date as of August 2004. Check for any recent changes here.

  1. Completed training in a generally recognized psychotherapeutic or counseling method (eg. Behavioral Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis, Systemic Psychotherapy, Marriage, Family , Child Counseling) and have at least three years of fulltime psychotherapeutic or counseling/consulting experience.

  2. Have participated in seminars led by Bert Hellinger or other psychotherapists/counselors from the referral list, have set up both their own family of origin and current relationship system, and have learned the basic orientation of Family Constellation Work.

  3. have participated in a training program in Family Constellations with supervision led by Bert Hellinger or another experienced trainer from the referral list (minimum 20 Days)

  4. Are familiar with the basic books and videos of Bert Hellinger (see:www.hellinger.com) and are able to communicate effectively the perspective they document, including the processes of the collective and personal conscience, entanglements and their resolution, the Orders of Love, and movements of the soul as understood by Bert Hellinger. In addition, they have a fundamental openness for perception without intention and phenomenological posture and abstinence.

  5. Have led and be able to document at least two 3-day seminars in Family Constellations per year;

  6. Have at least two members in good standing of the referral list who sponsor their acceptance on the list (include referral letters with the application)

  7. Participate in a regional group of Family Constellation practitioners.

  8. Pay € 100.00 application fee and a yearly membership fee of € 250.00 which includes a subscription to the journal "Praxis der Systemaufstellung" and reduced fees for Association sponsored congresses and other events.

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.

Requirements to be listed on the ConstellationFlow Website

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:

  1. The practitioner has attended workshops with at least 6 different practitioners who are registered with the DGfS- IAG This is so that they have had a broad exposure to the work of highly experienced and trained practitioners, rather than just repeating one person's particular translation of the work. Practitioners listed on the ConstellationFlow website who also listed with the DGfS- IAG have an asterix next to their name.

  2. They have substantial experience as a representative ie: Have attended at least 20 days of constellations facilitated by other practitioners who are registered with the DGfS- IAG. Events that meet these criteria can be found on the Special Events Page or on the States Pages (Vic, NSW etc) highlighted in green

  3. They have set up both their own family of origin and current relationship system, and have learned the basic orientation of Family Constellation Work.

  4. They are active in collegial sharing and evaluation such as Peer Supervision or Constellation Talk. Peer Supervision should include 4 or more people who have done some training with IAG registered practitioners and should meet at least 10 times a year.

  5. They keep in touch with ongoing developments in the field. ie: reading the literature and attending seminars and congresses.

  6. They have led at least four full days of Family Constellation workshops per year


OR

They have been initiating development of ConstellationWork in ANZ

eg. by organising workshops here by IAG registered practitioners or importing and distributing Constellation books.

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.
