Psychogenealogy training: how to become a practitioner?
Where does Psychogenealogy come from?
Psychogenealogy has its source in psychoanalysis, as the first psychogenealogists were psychoanalysts willing to put in relation the story of the patient and his family with ancestors stories that then are called “ghosts” .
This focus allows an understanding of certain conscious (but above all unconscious) psychological mechanisms, in order to release them. This liberation avoids transmitting family problems again (symptoms, issues...) to the next generation.
But Psychogenealogy also finds its roots in other well-known methods in the areas of personal development and psychotherapy, that we are going to give you a short presentation of now.
- Transactional Analysis (or TA) analyses the “what?”. It allows us to detect the interactions between people and discover the way they communicate. TA analyses what happens between two individuals, between a person and a group or a concept. In Psychogenealogy, TA brings an interesting light on the examination of the quality of internal family links (complicity, blackmail, rejections etc).
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (or NLP) analyses the “how?”. NLP allows to see the way a person communicates but also allows us to detect the mental strategies that the person uses to succeed or fail. It is by working on those strategies (reprogramming, mental preparation...) that he can then use his potential to the very best. In Psychogenealogy, NLP aims to understand the family strategies to be able to get free from them (plots against someone, negative beliefs intending to harm, etc).
- Systemic Analysis (or SA) analyses the “with whom?”. It allows us to reveal a person's behavior in the different systems of his daily life (family, work, friendship, social life, etc) and to discover then the impact of a system on the others. One system can “contaminate” another one for example: such is the case with a couple's problems that disturbs their professional lives...). In Psychogenealogy, SA brings a form of structure by positioning each family member at the place that he really occupies by revealing family ties (harmonious or not), clans (and their influence level), etc.
Each method reinforces the impact of Psychogenealogy that analyses the “because of whom?”in a transgenerational way. It is by detecting events' repetitions, revealing unsaid things and family secrets and placing each person in his real place on the family chessboard, that the patient can let go of certain symptoms, for example by eliminating unconscious behavioral loyalties (we will comment about that in another article).
As you have seen, the analysis of the “because of whom?' goes through the analysis of “with whom?”, “how?” and “what?”. This work can be pretty long, as it looks like opening Russian dolls. But it generally brings liberation and therefore the elimination of symptoms carried on by mistake from one generation to another.
How does one become a Psychogenealogy practitioner?
To become a Psychogenealogy practitioner, you will need to follow a training specifically taught by an expert. Although it's not mandatory to already be a therapist, to be trained in TA, NLP or SA, knowing the basis of those methods will be a huge plus, that we can also help you with.
