Author: johndesouza 04.04.2013 · Posted in Mind

The term “family constellations” is designed for families, individuals and couples who wish to resolve problems. They are mostly looking for new direction in their lives. This is a concept that can even enrich professional psychotherapists and other social workers who want new insights and techniques to modify human attitude and solve problems.

The article discusses about the “family constellation” (familie opstellingen) concept. It also talks about implementing it in the therapies and bringing forth complete new approach in solving behavioural problems. The program is designed to bring forth the following. Firstly, it has the potential to resolve misunderstandings, blocks and other entanglements in the family, between partners and relationship. It facilitates in breaking the cycles of disconnection, abuse, dysfunction, poverty and alienation. The concept has immense impact on the parenting problems and other painful family situations. This includes divorce, single parenthood, death, adoption, custody and parenthood as a whole. The concept also has the potential to deal positively with severe diseases and illness. People undergoing the therapy can also uncover reasons for the physical and emotional suffering and take preventive measures to start the healing process. This would include migraine, asthma, depression, fears, phobias, suicidal tendencies and drug abuse. The insight provided by the treatment can provide a bigger insight into the life situation and gain an understanding of the professional conflicts.

When working with thousands of family systems, the German psychotherapist and philosopher, Bert Hellinger, discovered the age old hidden “Orders of Love.” This exists in the depth of the family organisms and the human souls. Breaching these natural laws due to the tragic circumstances or unconsciously in the generations before, also affects the future family generations. It is a concept, where the after affects of the previous generations are borne by the later generations. This way, each family member is connected. In any workshop of “family constellation” (familie opstellingen), the incumbents are frequently astounded and deeply moved when the hidden connections and entanglements of their systems are revealed. For example, the therapist would say how an unhappiness or health problems is connected with the stillborn child of the someone in the family. They can even relate the difficulties happening in the present life happening due to a previous traumatic occurrence. Each hidden connection is found behind the personal and professional issues. The restoration of balance and harmony in a family system is important in addressing the physical illness. Most mental and emotional suffering is related to one another.

Undergoing this family constellation (familieopstelling) therapy helps in revealing the hidden dynamics in the family that can be worked together and healed. The release commences with the incumbent stating his or her problem. The sharing is limited to the sharing of information about the family. This would include deaths, and any untimely occurrence that would be helpful. The participant then chooses from the members of the group to be the representative of the certain family members, irrespective of whether they are alive or dead. The representative is then placed according to the relationship that they think they share. This would help in creating an energy field that would involve all the members of the group who would share the similar information in relation to the family member that they represent. Any change in position within the constellation would affect the information received. All this would proceed to make the previously unconscious family ties that are now perceptible and dynamic. This would further identify the participant’s problems. The representatives give the information, and by using appreciation and detachment techniques, the constellation is restructured according to the Orders of Love. This is now a balanced family system where the love and appreciation flows without any guilt. The love is healed, unimpeded and acknowledged.
