Summary

Using famous families as case studies, this book explains how to draw, interpret, and apply the genogram, a graphic way of organizing the information gathered during a family assessment. Widely used in training of health and mental health professionals, Genograms is an engaging introduction to the principles of family systems theory. The new edition highlights new developments in genogram use. Monica McGoldrick lives in Highland Park, New Jersey. Sylvia Shellenberger, widow of Randy Gerson, lives in Macon, Georgia.
