The effects and mechanisms acting in Systemic Constellation have been discussed widely since the beginning in the 1980’s.

Only 4 years ago a research group at the renowned University of Heidelberg in Germany launched the first scientific investigation to proof on the efficacy of this method.

The psychological functioning of 208 people was investigated before and after participation in a family constellation workshop.


The above figure shows the psychological functioning (OQ-45-TOT) for a control group and a group which experienced a family constellation workshop. For those who attended the seminar a clear improvement was detected after 2 weeks. The improvement kept even stable after 4 months.
