The Transformational Systemic Therapy (TST) Level I training program is for practicing counselors and therapists and for other helping professionals who are presently working with clients. The focus of the program will be using Transformational Systemic Therapy to bring about transformational change. The approach will be applicable to working with individuals, couples and families.

The course leaders will utilize lecturettes, small group discussions, structured exercises, demonstrations, experiential learning and skill practice sessions as part of the program.

The program will provide some hands-on skill development opportunities and participants will be required to work in triads between sessions, practicing some aspects of the program. Participants will also work with their own three generational family-of-origin maps to increase personal learning opportunities in applying a systemic, experiential therapy model.

The Transformational Systemic Therapy Model (TST) 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 bringing about change at the level of Being, as well as changes in doing, feeling and perceiving. The process taps the universal yearnings of individuals within their personal family and social systems and helps them work towards a sense of responsible wholeness. The process requires that the therapist has a high level of therapeutic competence and congruence.

TST 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.
