What Are Systemic Constellations?

An alternative therapeutic method which draws on elements of family systems therapy, existential phenomenology and Zulu attitudes to family. A Constellation attempts to reveal an unrecognized systemic dynamic that spans multiple generations in a given family and to resolve the deleterious effects of that dynamic by encouraging the subject to encounter representatives of the past and accept the factual reality of the past.
