‘Heal your Roots’

Family and Systemic Constellation and Trauma Healing Training

What is family constellation?

Family constellation is a gentle yet powerful technique that reveals and heals our family ties.

Through family constellation

  • We will reveal behavior patterns in the family system that continue from generation to generation
  • We will understand the hidden dynamics in our family
  • We will get different perspective and a deeper understanding of our emotional and behavioral patterns
  • We will allow full acceptance of the facts that have occurred in the past, thus solving their harmful effects on our lives
  • We will bring healing, acceptance and completion to relationships in our lives
  • We will allow love that has been frozen to flow again and a very ancient sense of separateness to dissolve itself
  • We will feel connected again, to ourselves, to our loved ones, to life
  • This method can also be used for study in organizations and teams

Is the training suitable for me and what will I get from it?

If you are a therapist, counselor, coach, or anyone intending to engage in working with people, you can use the constellation method in individual and group settings.

The constellation method will enrich your professional toolbox by enabling you to uncover hidden dynamics in your client’s family system, in a way that is not possible with other treatment methods.

Furthermore, constellation is a very fast way to detect and sometimes even repair unhealthy entanglements that may cause the client unnecessary suffering

If you work with people such as counselor, teacher, doctor, doula, midwife, mentor, etc., you will gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics inherent in your client’s various systems, which will enrich their professional capabilities and yours in a significant way

You, for yourself, will understand more deeply the dynamics of your family of origin, your past, your country, your culture, etc., that have shaped you and influenced who you have become.

You will accept and come to terms with your past and your origin, change destructive patterns of behavior, and live your life in a free, natural, satisfying and happy present.

Beyond the constellation techniques you will learn about life storytelling, basic trauma healing methods and other.

Furthermore, you will learn about my very special approach to therapy and counselling.  My attitude to human condition, my patience and ability to create a safe container are what makes the teaching a deep and unique experience, not to be missed.

One of my Israel students writes:

‘My constellation teacher Sakino Mathilde Sternberg has rich and deep study and experience, as well as being of German Origin. This healing and transformational work is her most precious gift to all people. Every constellation that we did including Holocaust material was undeniably strengthened by the inclusion of her presence as the powerful space-holder she is and also as someone of German origin.’ M.L.2021

How is the training structured?

Total training will be 36 days of 8 training units – total 288 training units

Each module will deal with a specific topic

Module 1
Family Constellation – Basic Principles Part 1
We will facilitate the constellation of each participant’s family of origin.
Participants will learn about their family system as well as the ‘order of love’, which includes the basic principles of place, order and balance, as described by Bert Hellinger.

Module 2
Family Constellation – Basic Principles Part 2
We will facilitate constellations on specific topics such as: relationships, various body symptoms, illnesses, cultural issues, social issues and more

Module 3
Biography Seminar, Working with Genograms and Storytelling – We will work in depth with each participant’s personal lifestory using genograms, photos and gathering detailed information over several generations.
This module includes also healing and cleansing ceremonies. This part requires various preparation activities, which are assigned in     Module 2.

Module 4
We will learn how to conduct constellations in individual sessions, using symbols, placeholders and imaginations.
We will also learn to use constellations beyond the definition of a family, for example, corporations, social systems, etc.

Module 5
Coping with trauma – We will learn about the dynamics of trauma, how to identify it and how to deal with trauma in the constellation and how to protect from (re) experiencing trauma.

Module 6
Practical Implementation and Supervision – Students will practice constellations with each other under supervision. We will learn how to practice self-care – how to protect ourselves and stay healthy and strong while dealing with our client’s life, families, and relationships.

  • Participants will receive assignments between modules
  • The study will be conducted in English with translation if needed
  • Some of the modules will also be attended by Sakino’s students from other countries around the world
  • After completing all parts of the training, participants will receive a certificate of participation and completion

Participation in the training is only possible in full – the number of places in the course is limited to 20, so we will not allow partial participation.

The certificate

A student who regularly attends the sessions and fulfills all the requirements of the program will get an international diploma on behalf of the “Joy of Living” center in Germany.

Since I am a member of the Official Psychotherapists Organization in Germany, as well as the “German Systemic Constellation Association”, the certificate is internationally recognized.
