Overview

"Monica McGoldrick's splendid new book is a gift, a rich source of hope, information, and insight that will teach readers to reconnect with our past and invent a new future."—Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.
Those who learn from the past are not condemned to repeat it. In this revelatory book, family therapist Monica McGoldrick explains how the use of genograms (family trees) can bring to light a family's history of estrangement, alliance, divorce, or suicide, revealing intergenerational patterns that prove more than coincidental.
McGoldrick's genograms of famous families, such as the Kennedys, Hepburns, Beethovens, and Brontës, complement discussion of the influence of birth order and sibling rivalry, family myths and secrets, cultural differences, couple relationships, and the pivotal role of loss. At the close of each chapter are questions that train the reader to think as researcher; with McGoldrick's guidance, we learn to mine previously untapped information about our own family patterns.

"...examines the repetition of family patterns through such famous clans as the Kennedys and Brontes, explaining why generational patterns occur and why they don't have to be repeated."

Editorial Reviews

Maggie Scarf
“Nothing captures the poignant struggles, dreams, and themes of family life with such precision as does the genogram, and in You Can Go Home Again Monica McGoldrick explains this method of family history-gathering with remarkable ease, clarity, and compassion.”
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beginning with the premise that understanding personal family history is essential for making informed choices, McGoldrick, director of the Family Institute of New Jersey, offers an innovative method of combining genealogical research with self-awareness. An exploration of family history, according to the author, is done by plotting a ``genogram,'' which is a family tree spanning three generations. Genograms of famous families provided here-Roosevelts, Brontes, Freuds and others-illustrate McGoldrick's thesis that all families have repetitive patterns such as illegitimacy or suicide that have been hidden from descendants. Understanding one's family patterns makes it possible, McGoldrick claims, to connect with one's ancestors and to recreate better family relationships for oneself. Included are many suggestions for obtaining and interpreting the information necessary to plot your own genogram. Illustration. (Mar.)
Library Journal
"Learning about your family heritage can free you to change your future," according to family therapist McGoldrick (Genograms in Family Assessment, Norton, 1985). Here she explores family patterns of birth order, sibling rivalry, family myths and secrets, couple relationships, class, cultural differences, suicide, and loss. McGoldrick believes that, when viewed properly, these patterns suggest that many repeated family experiences are not entirely coincidental. The key tool used is the genogram-a sort of annotated family tree that maps out family information, which she illustrates by mapping the genograms of several famous families. Questions at the end of each chapter prove to be extremely useful in aiding the reader to uncover family information that was previously clandestine, seemingly irrelevant, or simply overlooked. Although the writing is a bit dry at times-apparently targeting the educated lay reader and professional-general readers will find that this book is very helpful in researching and understanding family information and patterns of behavior. Recommended for marriage and family studies collections in academic as well as public libraries.-Dana L. Brumbelow, Auburn P.L., Ala.

    Good

    I really enjoyed this book. I thought the use of historical character was great. This book is a gentle way of look at yourself and your family. Bowen Therapist might consider suggesting this as reading material.
