Book Description

Systemic Constellation Work is a rapidly growing experiential healing process that is being embraced by a variety of helping professionals, both traditional and alternative, worldwide. This book explores the history, principles and methodology of this approach, and offers a detailed comparison with psychodrama - the original mind-body therapy - explaining how each method can enhance the other. Constellation work is based on the notion that people are connected by unseen energetic forces and suggests that the psychological, traumatic and survival experiences of our ancestors are genetically passed forward to the next generation and may live within us. Using insightful case studies from a variety of client groups, this book shows how Systemic Constellation Work can expand the possibilities of psychodrama techniques, and can be successfully integrated with psychodramatic enactment, guided imagery, ritual, concretization and other methods of healing and personal growth. This book will be essential reading for students and practitioners of psychodrama and Constellation work, as well as counselors, mental health professionals, experiential therapists, creative and expressive arts therapists and alternative practitioners looking to widen their knowledge of mind-body therapies.

"One of the most satisfying experiences for a teacher is to see one's students expand one's teaching.aInathis book, Karen Carnabucci and Ron Anderson have done just that. They have thrown light upon how two treatment systems can be viewed and applied in combination, giving both the respect and value they deserve. Thus the authors are to be commended for their fine, thoughtful contribution to the larger field."- Zerka T. Moreno, co-founder of Psychodrama, USA"This book has a multitude of practical applications, it is informative and it is a unique discussion. What it also provides is an adventure for the reader. It leaves one with a sense that these innovations require to some degree a sense of adventure, a willingness to stand on new ground, and a guide who is fearless. For those who are willing to venture out, oftentimes such a journey produces a humbling and healing result."- Francesca Mason Boring, facilitator and teacher of Systems Constellation and author of Notes from the Indigenous Field: Family Constellation, Ceremony & Ritual, USA"I am convinced that this lively, practical book will help to serve its good cause by inspiring those readers familiar with psychodrama to take a closer look at the seemingly similar but very different ways of thinking and practice of phenomenological Systemic Constellation Work. Likewise, it will beyond doubt encourage the Systemic Constellation facilitators to experiment with the many fine ways and concepts offered to us by Psychodrama."- Heinz Stark, founder and director of the Institute of Systemic Integrative Therapy, Germany "Anderson and Carnabucci have written a seminal book that bridges the fields of psychodrama and systemic constellation work. This book offers readers both sound theoretical information and practical interventions. A must read for all experiential therapists or those who yearn to include more experiential exercises into their professional practices."- Dale Richard Buchanan, Ph.D, former Director of Clinical Therapies, St. Elizabeths Hospital, Washington D.C., USA"In this pioneering book Karen Carnabucci and Ronald Anderson present a theoretical and practical integration of two experiential therapies - psychodrama and systemic constellation work, whilst still managing to respect the inherent differences of these two approaches. This integration is solidly based on practical experience of both modalities. This is clearly conveyed through their use of easy to follow case vignettes. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seriously interested in experiential therapies."- Dr. Chris Walsh, psychiatrist working in private practice, Australia

This book was easy to read, engaging, and compelling. I found myself eager for both constellation work and psychodrama, easily understanding the relationship and dynamics between the two. A great addition to any library!

I really enjoy the effects of constellation work and more and more admire the multiple ways this systemic view expands different fields. This book gave me a didactic breakdown of its application with and in comparison with psychodrama.

Also was the first material to provide me more background information on a method I have deep passion about it and knew just from an experiential standpoint.

More importantly, it was written in a way that I wished was more of it.

I recommend it for people that never heard about constellation work (no way you will get lost here) and for experienced professionals that want to explore this angle of Systemic Constellation.

Great content! Great delivery!

5.0 out of 5 stars A High Value Read for Anyone in Experiential Therapy October 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
Family and Organizational Constellations (called "systemic" in general) have a number of important roots, but Moreno's psychodrama is certainly a major one. What Carnabucci and Anderson have done in this volume is give us rich, readable, fully referenced comparison of both modalities--starting with the lives and personal journeys of their founders (Bert Hellinger and Jacob Moreno), moving to their similar but distinct methodologies, offering numerous case examples dealt with by either or sometimes both tools, and beginning a fruitful exploration of how the two might complement each other in practice.

This well-grounded and thorough approach makes this an important (hitherto absent) contribution. People (either professionals or interested clients) involved in either approach have a lot to gain from following the authors on this accessible tour of the in's and out's of psychodrama and constellations. I plan to make this book recommended reading in a constellation training I'll be teaching in 2013.
