Genograms

I seek to create a defined space where individuals have an opportunity to think about and discuss their familial relationships through constructing genograms.


What is a Genogram and how is it helpful in therapy?

A Genogram is a visual display of a person’s family with regard to medical, psychological and family relationship history. It’s much more than just a family tree. By creating a visual people are able to see patterns that are hereditary or environmentally passed down from one generation to the next.


Like a family tree the Genogram is depicted with simple symbols representing gender, family relationship and finally their living arrangements.


It shows the people in your family, blood relative or not, and how they relate to one another.

Genograms can:

  • Provide a well-rounded idea of a client’s family and social life
  • Be used to study and understand the family dynamics and patterns
  • Be useful when intervening to reduce dysfunction.

Each family unit is made up of complex interactions between family members. By removing or altering one interaction there is likely to be a noticeable shift or change in the remaining family members behavior, which can be more dysfunctional than before the change, was made. It is why the pictorial display of the Genogram is so useful for therapists, who can then see how one change might affect the rest of the family.
