Family constellation therapy
Could your chronic illness be related to how much suffering your parents or other family members experienced in their lives? This concept is the basis for a kind of therapy called family constellation therapy (FCT). The idea goes like this: when we pass invisible family wounds on from generation to generation, we bring along unconscious patterns of suffering. For some people, this then manifests as an illness. Who knew, right? FCT is a therapeutic approach that explores how these family dynamics might be impacting your health; the hope is that a deeper understanding will help you heal. During facilitated group workshops, members stand in for your family members and are set up within a constellation. At that point, practitioners of FCT believe that disconnected energy flows can be restored and tension released. This therapy was first pioneered by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger, and Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt (an expert on chronic illness), who views it as an essential part of healing, especially for those with chronic fatigue and Lyme.

Family Constellations: A Practical Guide to Uncovering the Origins of Family Conflict
Mapping out a “family constellation,” explains Dr. Joy Manné, encompasses exploring previous powerful life events from accidents to adoptions and accessing the deepest dynamics in that family system. This process helps us recognize and then resolve deeply seated family patterns. For example, in order to understand a person’s inability to trust, the family history of betrayal must be uncovered and released. These insights replace resentment with respect, pain with understanding.Dr. Manné uses the knowledge gained from her own practice as well as her educational experiences with Bert Hellinger, the founder of Family Constellations therapy, to clearly describe this technique. Most family constellation sessions are carried out in a group setting, with the facilitator first seeking clarity regarding the issue or problem the client has come to work out. Representatives are then chosen from among the group and the constellation is set up and worked in until it comes to resolution. This may be followed by a closing ritual and advice about how to integrate what the constellation has revealed. Through the use of real-life examples of family constellations, Dr. Manné makes this increasingly popular practice understandable and relatable.
It Didn't Start with You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle by Mark Wolynn
A groundbreaking approach to transforming traumatic legacies passed down in families over generations, by an acclaimed expert in the field Depression. Anxiety. Chronic Pain. Phobias. Obsessive thoughts. The evidence is compelling: the roots of these difficulties may not reside in our immediate life experience or in chemical imbalances in our brains—but in the lives of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited—that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations. It Didn’t Start with You builds on the work of leading experts in post-traumatic stress, including Mount Sinai School of Medicine neuroscientist Rachel Yehuda and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score. Even if the person who suffered the original trauma has died, or the story has been forgotten or silenced, memory and feelings can live on. These emotional legacies are often hidden, encoded in everything from gene expression to everyday language, and they play a far greater role in our emotional and physical health than has ever before been understood. As a pioneer in the field of inherited family trauma, Mark Wolynn has worked with individuals and groups on a therapeutic level for over twenty years. It Didn’t Start with You offers a pragmatic and prescriptive guide to his method, the Core Language Approach. Diagnostic self-inventories provide a way to uncover the fears and anxieties conveyed through everyday words, behaviors, and physical symptoms. Techniques for developing a genogram or extended family tree create a map of experiences going back through the generations. And visualization, active imagination, and direct dialogue create pathways to reconnection, integration, and reclaiming life and health. It Didn’t Start With You is a transformative approach to resolving longstanding difficulties that in many cases, traditional therapy, drugs, or other interventions have not had the capacity to touch.
THE CONSTELLATION APPROACH Finding Peace Through Your Family Lineage
The Constellation Approach -- Finding Peace Through Your Family Lineage is the culmination of Jamy and Peter Faust's brave and innovative healing work over the past twenty years. Together and individually, they have helped hundreds of people heal emotional wounds rooted in many varieties of trauma, neglect, loss, and longstanding family loyalties. Inspired by the teachings of Bert Hellinger, the Constellation Approach combines the practical wisdom of healing traditions from both East and West with the Fausts' signature understanding of the Soul's journey. As they carefully guide us to uncover the sources of unresolved and often long-hidden conflicts, a path to inner peace emerges. The journey they invite us to embark upon will not only change forever the way we understand the dynamics of our families, but it will also expand and deepen our experience of authentic love. This book reimagines our conflict-ridden world gradually but boldly transformed by peace -- one family at a time.
Health, Happiness, & Family Constellations: How Ancestors, Family Systems, and Hidden Loyalties Shape Your Life--And What YOU Can Do About It
This book provides a very different way to leave chronic suffering behind. Whether it's emotional or physical, regardless of the diagnosis, much of it is not anchored in you the individual. We suffer with and for those we have loved. With engaging personal stories, and simple explanations of dramatic transformations, Michael Reddy shares with you the missing link in healing. What gives all of us life, along with our sense of how love comes to us in the world, is a tightly-knit group experience known as THE FAMILY. Regardless of its quality, we bonded to this experience, and remain faithful in hidden ways. Family Constellations reveal and re-align hidden loyalties to unaccepted issues or events in your family's past that anchor change-resistant problems. They work directly with the family's subconscious system, or "soul." This is actually a collective, transgenerational intelligence that evolved long before rational thinking and individuality. It tends to distribute emotional burdens so that the family can survive. But if we don't let go of these burdensome bonds in later life, they block our greater health and fulfillment. This book tells the exciting and important story of how such bonds were formed and now released by constellations. The five simple chapters have excited counseling and healthcare professionals, intelligent people seeking improved health and wellness, and even constellation trainees and their trainers. Reddy reframes the central insights and explains things left previously largely implicit. At once practical, and uniquely theoretical, his writing reveals for a much wider range of readers the inner workings of the human family soul.
