Reviews:

“Monica McGoldrick is our most important and trusted voice on the subject of families. Her splendid new book unwraps famous families as no one has done before, while giving us a hopeful and transforming perspective on the ‘ordinary’ families we come from. This book should be stamped ‘Not for professionals only’ because it will teach all readers to reconnect with the past and invent a new future. Every man and woman in therapy can hope that their therapist has discovered this book.”

—Harriet Lerner, PhD, author, The Dance of Anger, The Dance of Intimacy and The Dance of Connection

 

“With searching insight and compassion, master clinician McGoldrick and her coauthors have done it again! By providing a crucial framework for understanding family experience in the context of history, and offering helpful questions to ask family members when constructing genograms, McGoldrick explores the power of stories to promote change. All in all, a delightfully wise, elegant, helpful, and practical clinical book.”

—Maureen Leahey, RN, PhD, Manager, Calgary Health Region Outpatient Mental Health, Calgary, Alberta


Description:

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.
