What is a genogram? How many different kinds of genograms are there? And, how do we decide which is the best one to use and under what condition? Whether you are using genograms to get a patient’s medical history, trauma history, substance use history, community or family roles, connections, or other factors that run through the patient’s family or community system, genograms are an engaging clinical instrument to use.

There is so much that can be gained, across populations, by using such a powerful visual representation. Join us and master getting the client's narrative through the use of genograms.
