The foundations of the strategic systemic approach

By Claude de Scorraille and Olivier Brosseau

This 4-session module presents the fundamental elements of the systemic model and its main strategic characteristics. 

The systemic and strategic approach

It is based on an intervention method developed by the School of Palo Alto and developed by its current research centers. Its specificity and originality are:

  • to know how to apprehend the complexity of human relations and bring a biopsychosocial vision to the psychological and relational problems that develop in ever more volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous contexts. 
  • to be strategic in terms of relational regulation by relying on 2 essential techniques which are problem solving and strategic communication, which make it possible to reduce the complexity of a relational situation without distorting it and to obtain effective operational effects and sustainability in resource development and problem solving.

"A look at the world, an intervention model and a strategic and pragmatic approach to voluntary change."
Claude de Scorraille


The “ Foundations of the strategic systemic approach ” module includes 12 hours of lessons, divided into 4 sessions and approximately 12 hours of personal work. It presents the fundamental elements of the systemic model and its main strategic characteristics. Thanks to practical exercises based on real sessions or case studies, you will have the opportunity to experiment with the key concepts of the approach and apply them to the intervention grid.

  • 100% online, it alternates face-to-face half-days including individual or sub-group work time.
  • it is provided by specialized international trainers from the clinical world, business, scientific research and universities.


The Module " Foundations of the strategic systemic approach " allows to initiate knowledge and an alternative systemic and strategic vision of relational regulations in the formation and resolution of psychological and relational problems. This is the introductory module of the Foundations level of the generalist training in methodology and strategic systemic practice of LACT.

This additional cross-cutting contribution is transferable to different types of activities and functions of support, education and helping relationship professionals or stakeholders in the clinical world.

Formation's goal

Deploy a systemic and strategic vision in their current or future practice of resolving relational and psychological problems (in the clinical world, in the social world or in business)

Skills acquired at the end of the training

  • shed light on the specificities of a systemic and biopsychosocial vision in the light of the contributions of systems, cybernetics and information theories with a view to describing in a dynamic and interactional way a problematic situation of an individual in his daily life (in his personal or professional sphere)
  • identify the potential for a systemic and strategic intervention, using the intervention grid of the approach from the Palo Alto school, in order to acquire a method of solving relational and psychological problems
  • identify the levers of voluntary change using the concept of solution attempts in order to reduce the complexity of a relational and psychological problem without distorting it
