About Genograms

The genogram is a practical framework for mapping and understanding family patterns. The word “genogram” is just a fancy term for a family tree that maps out who you belong to and some basic patterns of these primary relationships (See McGoldrick, M.Gerson, R, & Petry, S Genograms: Assessment & Intervention, 2008; The Genogram Journey, 2011; Genograms In Clinical Practice: Mapping Systemic Intervention, 2015).
