18 What is Genogram? Genogram is a map that provides a graphic picture of family structure and emotional process over time. It was developed by Murray Bowen, M.D. as part of his family systems theory and has become a standard form among clinicians for describing families.

19 It is a format of drawing the family tree that records information about family members and their relationships over at least three generations.

20 It is a convenient tool in identifying the legacies that are transmitted by multigenerational transmission system.

21 Our families transmit values, role expectancies and general attitudes from generation to generation in the form of family legacies

22 The genogram offers a means of analyzing our own family, our ancestors, and the traits that make us and our family unique.

23 The Genogram is a structured technique for promoting insight into the influence of intergenenerational family dynamics so that we can expand our freedom of choice in terms of how we may relate to our family members and the world.

24 Similarities to geneology:  looks at significant personalities and events  Tracks the social history of the family  Studies the social context of the individual.

25 Multigenerational patterns and influences:  behavioral – ways of coping with and adapting to change  Cognitive – family rules, myths, rituals  Emotional – unresolved traumas, loss and grief.

30 A Letter From God To Your Family “I LOVE YOU” (JOHN 15:19). “You are my beloved Family, on all of you my favor rests (Mark 1:11). From the beginning, I have called each one in the family by name (Is. 43:1)

31 Your family is mine and I am yours. I have conceived and molded you in the depths of my Heart (Jeremiah 1:15). Your are all carved in the palms of my hand, and have always protected you in the warmth of my embrace (Isaiah 49:15-16).

32 I have seen your family struggles. I have tried to keep you intact even if you refused my invitation many times. Although you have already created irreversible things in your life which physical events cannot bring back anymore, I am always giving you a chance to bring things back through my Heart where reconciliation, forgiveness and healing are always possible (Isaiah 11:3-9).

33 From now on, please believe me that wherever you go I will go (Ruth 1:16), wherever you rest, I stay with you and keep you watch. The food that I will give and the drink that I will offer will not make you hungry and thirst again (John 6:27).

34 From here, know me as your own and your family as mine (Deuteronomy 6:4). Your family belongs to me. Starting today, you will see me in your father, mother, sisters, brothers, your community member, your fellow youth, your lover and ….yes, even your child…I am in you as I am in them. Nothing will separate you and your family from me anymore (Romans 8:38)

35 I WILL BE WITH YOUR FAMILY UNTIL THE END OF TIME (Matthew 28:20) The Faithful God (Hosea 11:12)


37 Definition of GENOGRAM: a diagram outlining the history of the behavior patterns (as of separation, abortion, alcoholism or suicide) of a family over several generations; also: a similar diagram detailing the medical history of a family in order to assess a family member's risk of developing disease.

38 GENOGRAM From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A genogram is a pictorial display of a person's family relationships and medical history. It goes beyond a traditional family tree by allowing the user to visualize hereditary patterns and psychological factors that punctuate relationships. It can be used to identify repetitive patterns of behavior and to recognize hereditary relationshipsmedical historyfamily tree

39 Genograms were first developed and popularized in clinical settings by Monica McGoldrick and Randy Gerson through the publication of a book titled Genograms: Assessment and Intervention in 1985. Genograms are now used by various groups of people in a variety of fields such as medicine, psychiatry, psychology, social work, genetic research, education, and many more. Some practitioners in personal and family use genograms for personal records and/ or to explain family dynamics to the client. Few if any genealogists use them.medicinepsychiatrypsychologysocial workgeneticeducation

40 GENOGRAM SYMBOLS A genogram is created with simple symbols representing the gender, with various lines to illustrate family relationships. Some genogram users also put circles around members who live in the same living spaces. Genograms can be prepared by using computer drawing program.

41 Genogram symbols will usually have the date of birth (and date of death if applicable) above, and the name of the individual underneath. The inside of the symbol will hold the person’s current age or various codes for genetic diseases or user-defined properties: abortions, still-births, cohabitations, etc.genetic diseases

42 GENOGRAM CONTAIN A genogram can contain a wealth of information on the families represented. It will not only show you the names of people who belong to your family lineage, but how these relatives relate to each other. For example, a genogram will not only tell you that your uncle Paul and his wife Lily have three children but that their eldest child

43 was sent to boarding school, that their middle child is always in conflict with her mother, that their youngest has juvenile diabetes, that Uncle Paul suffered from depression, was an alcoholic, and a philosopher, while Aunt Lily has not spoken to her brother for years, has breast cancer and has a history of quitting her jobs.boarding schooljuvenile diabetesdepressionalcoholic

44 FAMILY RELATIONSHIP One of the advantages of a genogram is the ability to use colour- coded lines to define different types of relationships such as family relationships, emotional relationships and social relationships. Within family relationships, you can illustrate if a couple is married, divorced, common- law, engaged, etc. family relationshipssocial relationships

45 Emotional Relationships Genograms may also include emotional relationships. These provide an in-depth analysis of how individuals relate to one another. Colour-coded lines represent various emotional relationships that bond individuals together.

46 A genogram looks like a family tree, but with all the different types of relationships, it contains a significantly more detailed and complete picture of the family or group it tree
