I have been working within an Integrative Model of Medicine for the past twenty years. It has been apparent to me that when assisting an individual to achieve her full health potential, addressing her signs, symptoms and disease processes as well as addressing underlying emotional trauma, cognitive belief systems and family system entanglements remain the cornerstone of a successful therapeutic outcome. I have been a student of Mark Wolynn for the last year, studying his particular method of integrating emotional trauma with family constellation therapy. His addition to these two therapeutic processes has been the integration of a Core Language line of questioning. With the addition of this distinct piece, I have developed the ability to extract the most essential information required to work effectively with both developmental trauma issues as well as family system dynamics. His unique approach has enhanced my own exponentially beyond any other method I previously employed. I believe the subtly of language used is an essential element to the integration of this work. Furthermore, Mark’s uncanny ability to uncover, through this particular line of questioning and his acute observation of the unfolding field, the essential dynamics operating beneath physical complaints is nothing short of miraculous. His technique enables a radical shift in perspective for both those patients who have struggled for a considerable amount of time to understand the events underlying their disease causality as well as for those practitioners and clinicians involved in this work. The new healing image that is evoked in this combined cognitive as well as phenomenological approach has proven to be a deep resource for the patients’ movement towards an integrated healing process.
