Family Constellation Therapist, Berthold Schmidt shares intrigue, insight and adventure as he examines new questions about spiritual enlightenment, healing and the role of man's imagination in unique fictional work, "Conster" (Sycomore Books, August 2012).
In his book, "Conster", real-life part-time therapist Berthold Schmidt draws on life experience and intuitive right-brain writing to create a new breed of novel about a new profession guiding the thinking for the next generation of self-help. The perfect combination of Schmidt's knowledge about right-brain therapy and a manuscript created through "right-brain writing" has produced a novel of unusual approach to accompany the main character, Jay through a watershed moment in his career.
Schmidt, who gives credit for the story's content to the right-brain writing method he used explains, "I am the writer, I wrote it down. My experience in working as conster certainly played an important role, but in no way could I have invented this story. It came through my right brain, and while writing I kept wondering where this story would lead us, conster Jay and me."
A "Conster", short for Family Constellation Therapist, is a person who through individual or a form of group counseling assists individuals in resolving issues from both their present life as wells as those that may have been carried forward from generations past. Widely accepted in Europe for more than ten years, this form of right-brain therapy is based on the work of Bert Hellinger, who demonstrated that traumatic events can leave their imprint on a family system for generations , causing unconscious and repeated patterns of behavior and suffering.
As the reader shares the experiences of family constellation work within the pages of "Conster", main character Jay experiences personal and spiritual changes along the way that may mirror the reader's very own.
A quote from the book alludes to this journey of self-discovery, "I’m a therapist," Jay tried to reassure himself, unable to forget that therapists are people who need therapy for a lifetime - or more. "So if there’s an abyss, it’s me who created it."
