Systemic Insights and Solutions for Teachers, Social Workers and Parents

A weekend with Marianne Franke-Griksch (author of "You Are One Of Us" - "Du Gehoerst Zu Uns"), internationally known and respected for bringing the systemic approach to the world of education as a teacher and freelance consultant.

The event starts with a free talk on Friday 15th November from 19:00 - 21:00, and is followed by a 2-day non-residential, experiential workshop. The event will be in German with English translation. Marianne speaks and understands English, but prefers to talk in German.

Professionals can claim CPD points for both, the free Friday evening event and the 2-day workshop (2 plus 14 hours of further education).

The free Friday evening talk marks the introduction to a 2-day educational and experiential workshop on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th. On Friday night Marianne Franke-Griksch will give an overview of her take on how child education and parenting can succeed and be an enjoyable process for both, educators (as well as parents/social workers/carers) and children/young people. On 16th and 17th November (9:30 - 17:30 each) Marianne will teach the systemic approach in pedagogy in more depth and put the theory into practice with all participants.

It is possible to book separate tickets for the free talk and the weekend workshop.

Early bird tickets end on 31st July 2019 (you save £30).

Invited are teachers of all kinds and ranks, parents, carers, social workers, and anyone interested in understanding and using Systemic Pedagogy in more depth, and systemically working therapists and facilitators.

This event is a co-operation between Ivana Markovich (Familliation - Orders of Love, London) and Silvia Siret (OxISC, Oxford).



A short introduction into Systemic Pedagogy:

The systemic view enables us to see the sometimes unexplained attitudes and behaviours of our children and young people in a completely new light.

Children are looking towards their parents and want to "do something for them" if they see them struggling. Unconsciously, they try to counterbalance their parents' pressure, stress, longing or loneliness, and that way they also become distressed and in need. Their symptoms are in most cases a pointer to the actual "cause" - usually secretive, forgotten or unfinished incidents in one of the parents' families of origin (e.g. early death of a parent, or sibling of a father or mother, contempt of a family member, etc); but also often caused by the lack of respect between the parents, especially in separation situations.

These pressures on children can show in attention deficit [hyperactivity] disorder (AD[H]D); school angst; learning difficulties, bullying; difficulties with their peers and teachers and more.

Children and parents (carers) are subjected to two systems on a daily basis: their family in their private life, and their school environment, which is in public. When we look deeper into the dynamics, we learn to understand how children become in need in their unconditional devotion to their parents. Their love for their parents forces them to withstand well-meant educational tactics.

It is the goal of the systemic approach to release children from their burdens. Understanding the systemic approach, parents realise that their children are not ill, not resisting, not lazy, but carriers of symptoms, which can be viewed as signposts to the roots of the issues. Parents who realise this can start enquiring into the background of the issues that children present.
