The latest edition of this definitive book in the field of family therapy—the first update in ten years.
Widely used by family therapists— and by health care professionals in general—the genogram is a graphic way of organizing the mass of information gathered during a family assessment. This visual representation allows the practitioner to find patterns in the family system for more targeted treatment.
Now in its fourth edition, Genograms has been fully updated by renowned therapist Monica McGoldrick. Expanded with four-color images throughout, additional material explaining the use of genograms with siblings and couples, and a thorough updating to essential concepts, this edition provides a fascinating view into the richness of family dynamics.
Informative, comprehensive, and beautifully written and illustrated, this book helps bring to life principles of family system theory and systemic interviewing, as well as walk readers through the basics of constructing a genogram, doing a genogram interview, and interpreting the results.
A long-awaited workbook companion to Monica McGoldrick’s highly successful textbook Genograms.
This clinical companion to the bestselling Genograms: Assessment & Intervention uses case examples to articulate the most effective ways to use genograms in clinical practice.
Widely utilized by family therapists and 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. For a client with cutoff relationships or a history of trauma, it can be hard to talk to a therapist about past and present relationships. Genograms are a non-intrusive and non-confrontational way to learn about a client's history and chart crucial, complex information for effective assessment and therapy.
The Genogram Casebook deploys richly detailed case examples to address resistance to genograms, overcoming dysfunctional relationship patterns, working with couples, navigating issues of divorce and remarriage, using genograms in family sessions with children, repairing conflict and cutoff with family members, looking at the therapist's own family, and much more. It's a vibrantly practical, decisively essential guide to the use of genograms in mental health practice.
This widely used clinical reference and text provides a wealth of knowledge on culturally sensitive practice with families and individuals from over 40 different ethnic groups. Each chapter demonstrates how ethnocultural factors may influence the assumptions of both clients and therapists, the issues people bring to the clinical context, and their resources for coping and problem solving.
El genograma es una forma gráfica de organizar la masa de información reunida durante una evaluación familiar y de hallar pautas en el sistema familiar total.
Sin embargo, hasta ahora, se ha utilizado de modo poco estructurado y tanto las hipótesis generadas por los supuestos fundamentales cuanto los resultados derivados del uso clínico han sido confusos. Los autores han remediado esa situación al presentar un formato uniformado para la construcción del genograma y señalar los principios que sustentan su interpretación y aplicación. El texto cobra vida para el lector en los genogramas de familias famosas, como las de Sigmund Freud, Margaret Mead, Gregory Bateson, Virginia Woolf, Eugene O'Neill, Jane Fonda, John F. Kennedy y Thomas Jefferson, entre otras. Una vez que los autores han presentado la teoría de los sistemas familiares y explicado las entrevistas sistemáticas, ejemplificando todo con genogramas, pasan a la presentación de las aplicaciones clínicas en la terapia y en la medicina familiar; asimismo exploran nuevas fronteras, en particular el uso de genogramas generados por computadora.
"McGoldrick y Gerson han logrado lo imposible: nos han dado una descripción elaborada y completa sobre cómo reunir, interpretar y utilizar clínicamente la información sobre el proceso familiar que aparece en un genograma bien trazado y, además, han logrado que el libro sea ameno utilizando familias famosas para ilustrar sus presentaciones."
