What is Systemic Work?

We all live in human systems like our family, our work, the clubs we join, the school and training we follow, our friends, etc. The rules and unconscious laws in such systems are often complex.

Among the first developers of Systemic Work Bert Hellinger and Virginia Satir are to be found.
Hellinger discovered the characteristics of each system and developed a method to work with this and to make causes understandable. He developed the systemic work primarily for working with families (Family Constellations), later he did this for organisations (organisational constellations).
A constellation is a representation of a system by representatives, persons who each represent part of the system.

  • Systemic Work reveals unconscious or hidden dynamics (patterns) within a these systems. The dynamics may have direct influence on the present well-being of the system and individuals within that system.
  • Systemic Work can help a person see the systemic relevance of life from a different perspective. So he/she gets a better understanding of the conflict parties.
  • And finally, it can help identifying new options and strategies for action.

A Family Constallation shows how someone is unconsciously connected to his family system. Bert Hellinger discovered that there are three basic principles operating in systems.

These three basic principles are

  1. Bonding. Everyone is entitled to have a place in the system.
  2. Order. There is a hierarchy in terms of time.
  3. Give and take. The parent gives and the child takes.

If one of above basic principles in the system is disrupted, people in the system will feel that and dynamics are created. By addressing the problem you will be able to bring the system back in balance.

Examples of dynamics are:

  • To follow someone in the system who is excluded or not recognized.
  • A child takes her mother's role within the family.
  • Carrying sombody else's burden. Mostly feelings like shame, guilt, grief or pride.

Dynamics often exists out of love for the family system, and loyalty of the members. From these dynamics symptoms arise in which we are confronted with in daily life.

Examples of symptoms are

  • Extreme sense of responsibility
  • Lack of entrepreneurship
  • Not reaching goals
  • Uncertainty
  • Being fearful
  • Unclear physical complaints
  • Restlessness

You might encounter these symptoms daily in different contexts and relationships, sports, work, friends, family, etc. From the symptoms and with the help of the setup the underlying dynamics are revealed. Through the image that makes the set-up visible and the energetic effect within that field, the system can relax. Is the system in accordance with the basic principles (laws) then the energy will flow again and you can make the desired change.

The Force

How this force or energy is explained, remains a mystery. Rupert Sheldrake has after much research and experiments, revealed that dogs show by their behavior that they immediately feel when their absent owners are on the way back home and immediately notice when returning is interrupted. They feel that even in different continents. There must therefore be a force in which both are connected to each other.
