Without the persons having prior knowledge of the client’s problem, it is possible for the facilitator to conduct a Family Constellation with these persons, in answer to the client’s concern, either with the client’s present family or with the family of origin. Due to the forming of the constellation a force field is brought into action, which can be felt by everyone involved. The phenomenon is, that the persons chosen for the constellation are able to sense feelings known to the persons they are representing. This shows itself in gestures, phrases and courses of action.
The picture of the family presented to the facilitator allows him/her an insight into the hidden dynamics of the family and often can lead to a healthy, healing solution.
