The journey through the process of grief moves forward at a personal pace and may be lengthy. It is eventually resolved in acceptance, finding inner peace and reconnecting to life. Complicated and unresolved grief and loss may reduce quality of life and disrupt the connection to positive life energy. It may also lead to depression, anger, blame, feeling alone, loss of hope and joy in life, and sadly may lead to suicide.
Using music and songs in grief-therapy is based on the Satir Model as well as a holistic, body-mind-spiritual approach. Songs are used to help the bereaved connect to their pain and other emotions present. It allows one to feel and express the true experienced feelings and not what one ‘should’ feel or others expect from them. It is a connection to the universal experience of pain and loss. The music resonates with our bodily reactions, offering an opportunity to experience and express the pain through tears, movement and sound.
Pre-recorded music and songs facilitate the ability to talk about loss, pain, painful emotions and memories. They enable clients to address perceptions of life and death, within a safe and protective distance. Songs and music have a universal, spiritual quality, connecting to the positive life energy, hope and faith. Sharing bereavement songs with a therapist offers support, comfort, sense of togetherness, sharing and hope.
This workshop offers participants an experience of using personal grief music and songs as a tool in the process of healing. Songs are used as an assessment tool of the client in the grief process as well as for growing awareness and acceptance in the process of healing and change.

- 3. Is the Attachment More Than a Relationship? – The influence of Attachment on the Relationships in a Family System
Valéria Hudáková, Rebeka Trepačová 16:00 – 17:30 CET (90´)
Through this workshop, we invite people to realize the difference between a relationship and a bond, how that knowledge can be helpful in creating a family, in creating relationships in the family system, relationships between people.
The given topic broadly shows how the given bonds are created, what all influences their quality, and how we can add „what did not happen“ in the bonds.
It is also important to be aware of the similarities and connections with other living organisms, which allows us to respect all the determinants that act in the history of human development, with an impact on the genesis of the individual.
The first bond is the mother-child bond. so-called primary bonding It requires a sperm and egg donor as well as a uterine donor to find ourselves on this planet. The basic formula for birth consists of three, a triad, two for survival. The child receives a primary bond in order to survive.
The second relationship that a child learns how to be in the world and in relation to the world is the secondary bond. The mother should invite the father and the father should register (show interest) with the child.
A couple relationship is the formation of a relationship between two adults. It is important to maintain and nourish it, it thrives where the emotional bond of the couple is strong.
The workshop focuses on the processes of creating a primary, secondary bond (bonding) in the family – the bond between mother, father, and child – and the impact of these processes on the development of family relationships, with their healthy variants and dysfunctional alternatives.
Through experiential exercises, sculpture modeling, and exploration, it is possible to learn to know the basic optimal patterns for human development and distinguish their deviations.
The workshop offers participants the opportunity to explore partner bonding, primary and secondary bonding as a basic prerequisite for a functioning primary triangle through experiential learning. Participants will gain experience through the technique of sculpture and inductive learning. They will also get the opportunity to connect their experiences with the theoretical and practical approach of V. Satirová and her innovative contribution to family therapy.

Self-inquiry can happen on many levels. Body sensations can reveal information and resources that the conscious mind is not in contact with.
They can contribute to the process of self-exploration in the Satir Model. Accessing body sensations heightens our awareness of inner parts. The wisdom contained in those parts can guide the pace and process of growth and integration.
This workshop will provide the opportunity for a deeply experiential and transformative process.
Anastacia has been providing body-centered coaching and training for 24 years on five continents and across many cultures. Her work includes use of the Satir Model and Somato Respiratory Integration in a unique blend of congruent models. She has studied with the Satir Institute of the Pacific, currently teaches in China and Thailand as well as to online clients around the globe. She is an Adjunct Faculty Member of The Banmen Satir China Management Center.

According to Satir, therapy must be experiential.
In this workshop, we will experience some new creative methods of therapy, and learn how we can dare to develop our own creativity as therapists.
„Once the therapist is congruent, he or she connects with the wisdom of the universal Life Energy, and can be creative“ (Satir)
I will share my experience working as a therapist with „the woman who had a bomb in her tummy“, and how she gave me the courage to create new meaningful methods, in order to meet our therapeutic goals Successfully.
This workshop will invite you to meet your yearning to become creative, as well as the fears that stand in your way.
We will use a very short video of Virginia addressing this issue, and learn how she helped people to accept these two voices – the wish to grow, and the fear to change.
So, let’s get out of the „prison of fears“, as Virginia described it, and let’s get closer to the creative therapist we always wanted to be…
Time: 90 minutes
Participants: 10 – 16
Room: Studio or medium classroom appropriate for movement.

This workshop is intended for professionals working with teens, and with families that include teens.
The workshop is based on contemporary research showing how teens are attracted and connected to music from Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual perspectives. Biologically, music affects our brain structure and connections promoting neural changes and regulation, activating various centers, and creating new neural connections. Socially music is a means for social relationships, belonging, shaping personal identity, and exploring the self. Emotionally music can be an outlet for overwhelming emotions and mood swings, promoting expression of feelings in acceptable ways. Spiritually, music evokes ideas, values, beliefs about the essence and meaning of life. Music is an easy and non-threatening way to connect to the dark sides and challenges which emerge at adolescence.
In this workshop we will explore the use of diverse musical interventions with teens challenges of developing personal identity.
No prior musical background is required.
- 3. Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy: Working With Couples Within and Between for Building Trust when it is Broken
Sibel Erenel 14:00 – 15:30 CET (90´)
When trust is broken between intimate partners; both individuals are shaken, there is chaos, pain, hurt, sadness, anger, fear, disappointment that both of them experience. Yet, the couple can move forward, re-build trust, heal the wound, and even strengthen their relationship. Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy (STST) can help the couple move through the crises, work through the stages of the shock and loss of trust by working intrapsychically and interactively. While exploring the impacts of being in the survival, therapy helps the individuals realizing of the resources, strengths each have within and between. STST’s five essential elements for transformation help the couple in this change process. Working systemically, experientially they will connect through their yearnings, hopes and wishes; therapy will move in the positive direction and stay change focused rather than focusing on the symptom or the problem. The therapist’s congruence will help promoting hope, safety, trust and the promote the connection with Self and each individual’s life energy. Hence individuals will be better choice makers and take responsibility for their emotions, actions and their experience.
This workshop will allow participants to learn experientially the dynamics that contribute to the loss of trust and in the building of trust in working with couples.

- 4. Sculpting Using a Photography According to the Teachings of V. Satir – Discovering the Inner World of People Through a Photography
Nadežda Feketeová, Svetlana Poláková 16:00 – 17:30 CET (90´)
We will work with a specific photo of the workshop participant. Which of the participants is interested in learning something about their loved ones and themselves, please bring a photo – ideal if it is a photograph of a 3‑generation family.
Since photography was invented, its significance has been enormous. It captures a moment from the past, which persists in the photo even in the present and is a message for the future. It captures the state of Being of people at the moment when they were photographed, their relationships but also the context – the environment in which they lived and also the historical period. When working with people, Virginia Satir returned to people’s past because she was convinced that the answers to their present difficulties are often in the past.
We offer the participants of the workshop an experience, how with the use of sculpture we can enliven the characters from photography and learn about their inner world and their mutual relations.
