Community Genograms: Using Individual, Family, and Cultural Narratives with Clients
Sandra A. Rigazio-DiGilio
Teachers College Press, 2005 - Education - 158 pages
The graphic representation of client experience has long been acknowledged as an invaluable therapeutic tool. In this pragmatic book, the authors have brought the use of the most widely used graphic device "the family genogram" into the wider context of community and culture, to help counsellors and therapists better understand individuals and families-in-context. For clinicians as well as clients, the community genogram is a practical and versatile tool that places emphasis on the positive strengths and resources that can be brought to bear in the therapeutic process.
