Overview

Genograms: Assessment and Intervention by Monica McGoldrick, Randy Gerson, Sylvia Shellenberger

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. Now in its third edition-updated and expanded with a striking color insert and new material on the clinical applications of genograms and family play genograms-this popular text effectively explains how to construct a genogram, do a genogram interview, and interpret the results.

Genograms of famous families-Sigmund Freud, Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, the Kennedys, Jane Fonda and Ted Turner, Bill Clinton, Princess Diana, the Roosevelts, and Thomas Jefferson, to name a few-bring the text to life, and help to elucidate the principles of family systems theory and systemic interviewing, which form the basis of genogram work. By providing a fascinating view into the richness of family dynamics, McGoldrick and her coauthors offer an invaluable guide to clinicians for accurately charting a family's structure, making it easier to scan for potential problems and take proactive steps to utilize resources when necessary.
