About the Institute

Our Mission

The Creating Connections Satir Institute is a spanish-english, bilingual, online space where we can explore and develop the different aspects of what it means to be connected to the people around us, and to oneself. 

The Institute provides training and mentoring for people who want to experience personal growth and change in accordance with Virginia Satir’s Transformational Systemic Therapy in an individual or group format.

We are most alive when we are supported, when we have choices, and when we are connected to the energy of others.

Our Approach

The Virginia Satir method is based on the six phases of transformative change.

They are:  Making Contact, Validating, Facilitating Awareness, Promoting Acceptance, Eliciting Positive Choices and Constructive Change.

These are what make this type of coaching and mentoring so unique, powerful and effective.

There are three levels of training, which culminates in your certification as a Virginia Satir Coaching & Mentoring Specialist.:

  • Level 1: Is a personal growth program that focuses on enriching your relationship with yourself and others (12 hours).

  • Level 2: Is in-depth training in Virginia Satir’s concepts and process and additional skills targeting change (8 hours).

  • Level 3: Is a specialist training focusing on Satir’s Coaching and Mentoring skills and includes a supervised practicum and culminates in the award of the formal certificate (20 hours).

Advanced Training

It is also possible to continue your training program to become a Certified Trainer (Level 4) and Certified Master-Trainer (Level 5).

  • Level 4: Is an advanced program where you learn how to mentor and train candidates in the Virginia Satir method (20 hours).
  • Level 5 – Is a Master Trainer program where you learn how to ‘train the trainers’ (hours vary).

Professional Development

I also provide opportunities for ongoing learning and development via continuous  professional supervision and I run a bi-monthly study group for professionals interested in Virginia Satir’s process model of growth.

Please contact me for more information on these advanced programs.
