Complete program

In Systemic Therapy, thanks to the international collaboration of Ibero-American systemic schools.

The Ibero-American Master Degree in Systemic Therapy is the result of the collaboration of various international institutions with extensive experience and expertise in specialized training. They all share a common goal: to provide up-to-date and innovative training that integrates the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for the professional practice of systemic therapy.

On the one hand, the Blanquerna-URL School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences (FPCEE) in Barcelona, Spain, continues with its long-standing commitment to provide outstanding postgraduate training, thus guaranteeing the optimal development of future professionals. And on the other, its centers ensure quality psychotherapist training and direct contact with clinical practice, these being the Centro Peruano de Terapia Familiar y de Pareja (Lima, Peru), RIMANA – Escuela Sistémica del Ecuador (Quito, Ecuador), and the Escuela Sistémica de Chile (La Serena, Chile).

Thanks to the synergy between all the collaborating institutions, the opportunity has emerged to offer the Ibero-American Master Degree in Systemic Therapy. This enables us to respond to professional needs according to the socio-cultural context of each site, ensuring students' smooth development as psychotherapists.

The master degree is taught in a hybrid learning format and the placements involving interventions, the work experience and the elective courses of this program can be carried out in person in the following locations: Lima (Peru), Quito (Ecuador), and La Serena/Santiago de Chile (Chile). (26 ECTS).

The rest of the training will be done online and in Spanish. (34 ECTS)

In collaboration with:

The Escuela Sistémica de Chile (ESCH) was founded in 2004 by the psychotherapist Sandro Giovanazzi, who, on his return to Chile from his postgraduate training at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, sought to create outstanding academic training activities in La Serena and Santiago.

As a result, since the school was founded, national and international links were formed with renowned psychotherapists. Professors such as Dr. Juan Luis Linares, director of the family therapy school at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain; Dr. Roberto Pereira, director of the Escuela Vasco Navarra de Terapia Familiar; Dr. Marcelo Ceberio, academic director of the Escuela Sistémica Argentina; Dr. Horacio Serebrinsky, director of the Escuela Sistémica Argentina; these are just a few of the therapists who have visited and collaborated in training professionals in the region.

The ESCH is currently run by psychotherapists Sandro Giovanazzi and Cristian Vásquez.

We are an organization made up of a highly qualified professional team that addresses the mental health care needs of individuals and organizations, through comprehensive diagnoses and interventions focused on both problems and human strengths.

Today, we are involved in training for the 60-credit Ibero-American Master Degree in Systemic Therapy, which we carry out jointly with the Blanquerna School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences of Ramon Llull University in Spain, under a hybrid learning format.

We are an institution that seeks to provide the best responses to issues associated with the integral development of human systems, where individuals, families and various organizations participate. And in doing so, we aim to become a leading center both regionally and nationally.

RIMANA – Escuela Sistémica del Ecuador is an institution committed to the training of professionals in education, health, psychology, social work, communication, and other social and human sciences.
It was founded in 2017 by Gissela Echeverría Castro with a view to training professionals who want to SPECIALIZE in the SYSTEMIC MODEL and to efficiently support families, couples, children, and adolescents in processes that enable them to achieve the well-being and tranquility to which we are all entitled.

Working with couples and families requires specialist knowledge and an understanding of the complexity of human systems and their relationships.
The systemic paradigm allows us to do this effectively and respectfully, trusting in the strengths of the families and working on the BEING, KNOWING, AND DOING of the new therapists who will be the promotors of these principles in their therapeutic and preventive work.
We dream of new human relationships. Of territories, schools, workspaces, families, relationships, bodies, women, men, boys, girls, and adolescents FREE FROM VIOLENCE.
Systemic thinking, human communication, and emotional education and intelligence are the pillars of the training we offer to achieve this.
We have national and international teachers who are experts in the systemic field.
We are part of the European and Latin American Network of Systemic Schools (RELATES), and we maintain alliances with all the schools of the Network for cooperation and academic exchange, as well as for professional internships for our students.
In 2020, we partnered with Ramon Llull University in Barcelona (Spain) and its Blanquerna School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences, with whom we offer the Ibero-American Master Degree in Systemic Family Therapy, alongside other schools in Peru, Chile, and Spain.
Our vocation is the creation of a CULTURE OF PEACE, and we need hearts outraged and indignant about injustice; souls passionate about transformation, ethics, and love; souls who embrace this cause, and promote and amplify our work model in schools, families, and organizations, etc., driving the changes we want to see in society.

If you made it here, you are already a part of it, and we welcome you, because

"MORE HANDS ARE NEEDED TO HELP FAMILIES". Gissela Echeverría Castro – Director.

  • Acquire the basic skills to be eligible for the FEAP psychotherapist accreditation.
  • Acquire the basic skills to be able to carry out prevention and intervention for couples and families.

The objective of the master's thesis is to assimilate the basic skills acquired in the area of systemic therapy. It consists of the preparation of a research paper that allows the student to demonstrate theoretical and practical assimilation in a specific area in the field of systemic therapy.

The thesis is carried out during the second academic year. The topic and objective of the study must be consistent with the field of systemic therapy intervention.

The papers must be developed individually or in pairs following quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methodology. They may be written in Catalan, Spanish, or English.

The master's thesis is prepared annually during the second academic year. It is supervised by a doctoral professor specializing in research in systemic therapy.

A monthly follow-up is carried out throughout the entire process of the master's thesis. In addition to some joint sessions, individual tutorials are scheduled with the students in order to provide adequate follow-up during the development of the thesis. The individual tutorials will allow students to receive specific guidance to guarantee the quality of their work, ensuring a positive teaching and learning experience.

The assigned advisor gives a grade taking into account the continuous follow-up of each paper (during this period, the student must submit 3 drafts before the final version) and the development of the master's thesis (70% of the final grade).
Presentation and public defense before an assessment committee, made up of two systemic therapist professors external to the project tutoring. The grade will be given by consensus; if there is no consensus, each member of the assessment panel will award a grade and the average will be taken (30% of the final grade).

Stages of the admission process

The admission process for the school's own degree studies is developed in 3 stages:

  1. Pre-enrollment
  2. Admission
  3. Enrollment


Students can pre-enroll online (by accessing Pre-enrollment | Blanquerna or the pre-enrollment option for each course) and also in person at the school.

For online pre-enrollment, you will need to:

  1. Sign up on the unique registration system and create a username (if not previously obtained) and follow the instructions to completion.
  2. Make a payment of €50 (non-refundable fee for pre-enrollment rights and processing) can be made by credit or debit card, through a secure and confidential BBVA process. Alumni are exempt from payment.
  3. Upload the required documentation through the document repository.
  • ID card (both sides)
  • Resume
  • In some courses, other documents must be attached if the page on each degree indicates as such.


Once pre-enrollment has been completed, the candidate will be offered a date for an interview with the degree coordinator, who will assess their suitability and solve any doubts they may have about the course for which they are enrolling. Once the assessment is complete, the student will be informed of the result of the interview and how to enroll, if admitted.

Prior to enrollment, the person concerned must upload the qualifications or the receipt of the university studies completed to the document repository. If these documents are not available, the course may be taken but the qualifications will not be received and, instead, a university extension certificate or diploma will be obtained.


Once the above documentation has been assessed, and when there is a large enough group of pre-enrolled students, each candidate will receive the confirmation and information necessary to enroll. Enrollment implies obtaining a definitive place and will take effect within the deadlines indicated in the confirmation e-mail.

When students enroll, they will have two business days to pay the total cost of enrollment, by bank transfer, credit card or barcode. Studies can be paid in installments, without any interest, by bank transfer (Instructions to send the signed SEPA Document to Blanquerna)

Prices may be updated each academic year. Once enrollment has been formalized, the amount paid will not be refunded under any circumstances. Pre-enrollment and enrollment may remain open up to 15 days before the start of the course, provided places are available.

When a student enrolls, a contract for the provision of teaching services is formalized between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation, which is legally binding from the time of payment. Payment includes the corresponding insurance and, for students under the age of twenty-eight, compulsory academic insurance. If a student declines to take up a place, he/she will lose in full any amount he/she has paid.

The student accepts the rules for the use of computer services established by the Blanquerna Foundation. The student's personal data will be included in an automated file under the responsibility of the Blanquerna Foundation, so that this contract can be maintained and fulfilled. Students should note that their data may also be used to inform them about the future activities of the Foundation, or for the institution to send them publications.

In accordance with the provisions of Organic Law 15/1999 on the protection of personal data, students have the right to access their data to update, rectify or cancel them, or object to their use, by sending a letter, indicating which right they want to exercise.

This section is a summary of the general conditions for enrollment. It is only for guidance and therefore has no contractual value. In the event of any discrepancy, the provisions of the general conditions for enrollment specified in the receipt generated at the time of enrollment will prevail; this receipt formalizes the contract between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation; students can consult it on the intranet whenever they wish.

The School cannot guarantee that a course will be available if the requirement for a minimum number of enrollments is not met. In this case, the amount paid for enrollment and pre-enrollment will be refunded in full.

Foreign students

Applicants who have completed access studies outside Spain must obtain a certificate issued by the relevant body (university, embassy, consulate) confirming that the studies qualify the student in the country of issue to take the master degree or graduate studies.

Students are responsible for having all the official documentation necessary for their stay in Spain while studying at the School. Applicants can ask for a pre-acceptance document attached to the pre-enrollment receipt to initiate applications for visas or scholarships or carry out any other administrative procedure. Under no circumstances does this document guarantee a place if all the access and admission requirements are not met. Once applicants have been accepted and enrollment is complete, they can request a letter of admission from the Academic Secretary, if required, by paying the corresponding fees.
