Family Constellation in individual therapy.

About The Event
What is Family Constellation Therapy?
The Systemic Constellation approach, as developed by Bert Hellinger, is a powerful tool for unlocking hidden family dynamics and events that may still influence and entrap individuals many generations hence. We consider the individual as part of a greater whole – a family system – rather than as a separate entity. His individual behaviour, feelings and attitudes, have to be understood in the context of this larger group. As in any other system, unspoken laws operating within the family guide behaviour that we, as family members, are largely unaware of. The way we bring these hidden, family dynamics to light is to have the client use the help of figures to create a constellation of his or her family.
What is it useful for?
This approach has proved helpful in resolving issues of depression, suicide, physical and mental illness, relationship difficulties and challenges in the workplace. Some children have difficulties in dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. They also may need to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there is a major transition, such as a divorce, a move, or abuse within the family. Through play, different exercises and Family Constellations for children, in a brief period of time, you can help them to build resources, to find tranquillity and relief in the difficult areas of their lives
What to expect from this workshop?
The workshop will allow us to do individual work with each participant so we can practice working with figures in a real-life scenario. We encourage participants to bring either a personal issue or a client's so that we can do a constellation for that particular person and issue. The participant and therapist sit close to one another at a table with a box of figures in front of them. The therapist then asks the client to select representative figures for their system and arrange these figures in front of them creating a living model of their family Then we explore the relations between the family members represented by the figures. Finally, healing movements are supported by the interventions of the therapist, who brings in missing or excluded family-members, suggests new and more conscious behaviours, and finds healing sentences for the family members to say to each other. The client will be able to go beyond their family and give birth to the individual they are destined to be.
Who should attend?
Professionals looking for resources to work with their clients. We recommend this training to counsellors, youth workers, family support workers, teachers, and anyone with an interest in discovering how family intricacies and subliminal messages are affecting their life, relationships, work and health.
