Editorial Reviews

Review

The book is thoughtfully organised so that a practitioner would be able to use it for reference; the chapter on assessment/diagnosis using the two orientations is particularly insightful. We were impressed that so much material is incorporated in a relatively short book, including those aspects of Hellinger's theory that are generally regarded as controversial. We liked the humility with which the book ends, acknowledging that we stand in a particular time, that both modalities have grown and changed and will continue to do so in the hands of future practitioners. -- The Transactional Analyst One of the most satisfying experiences for a teacher is to see one's students expand one's teaching. In this 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!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Michael Reddy on 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.

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!
