Family Constellations are a treatment method invented by Bert Hellinger and developed by his expositors. This well-grounded and solution-oriented application can change recalcitrant problems in a short time because it addresses core issues and utilizes the power of the family system, revealing hidden gemstones of love. Restoring the natural symmetry of respect and affiliation rids clients of the burdens that make life painful and sad. Constellations can optimize life energy and diffuse problematic scripts that cause redundant dysfunctional patterns. This workshop is suitable not only for therapists who practice the method of family constellations —the knowledge of this therapeutic strategy can be applied in every kind of counseling.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Identify the main dynamics how former family generations influence the present in order to understand the deeper sense behind problematic scripts and their resistance.
  2. Demonstrate guiding the client to the hidden love in his family system, to help transforming “ensnared love” into “aware love” in order to leave adopted burdens behind.
  3. Utilize strong emotions and pain that the client is afraid of in order to terminate long-lasting troubles.
  4. Demonstrate understanding of avoiding traps that mislead both the therapist and the client.
