Ancestral Blueprints: Revealing Invisible Truths in America’s Soul, by Lisa Iversen, MSW, LCSW, is published by Family Constellations West Publishing.


This book contains my reflections on psychotherapy, truth, ancestry, tribe, and democracy. 

Many people who seek therapy to heal their own pain also hope to heal wounded family networks. This hope contains the invisible, often unacknowledged truth that our lives are deeply affected by events that took place in earlier generations. 

Individual struggles with grief, shame, guilt, perfectionism, and dysfunctional families mirror invisible collective experiences frozen in America’s soul.

We are born into the silence passed from one generation to the next, but the truth asks to be seen, heard, and respected. Our heritage, our blood lineage…Cherokee, Scottish, Irish, Chinese, German, Mexican, Jewish, Nigerian, Kenyan, the unnamed, the unknown…they all matter.

This book offers a compassionate framework for observing and interacting with life, inspired by our ancestral blueprints.

~~ Lisa B. Iversen, MSW, LCSW
