Widely used by both family therapists and all health care professionals, the genogram is a graphic way of organizing the mass of information gathered during a family assessment and finding patterns in the family system for more targeted treatment.
Replete with genograms (now computer-generatable), three therapists explain interviewing for and formatting this tool to map family patterns and apply it in interpreting the family structures of 32 notables from Freud to President Clinton. The bibliography is sectioned into text references, references by topic, and biographical sources on the featured families. Previously titled (c. 1985). Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
