1. Family Genogram (150 points) a. (75 points) Complete an accurate genogram of your family. Include at these 3 generations (i.e., you, your parents, and your grandparents). Please identify the following on your genogram:
• Names, dates of marriage/births/deaths/separations/divorces (month & year), cultural/ethnic/religious affiliations for all significant family members. • Other information like immigration, occupation, education, city/state of residence, illnesses, substance abuse, mental health. Add descriptive information that clarifies relationships as needed (e.g., drug use, in jail, etc.) You may create a “legend’ if additional explanation is warranted.
• Show schematically the nature of key relationships (e.g., closeness, distance, conflicts). • Previous students have found that having interviews/conversations with family members around these areas provide new insight. I encourage you to contact siblings, parents, uncles/aunts, grandparents for corroborating information. Even responses to such requests can be very informative. • You may use a medium larger than an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper. The use of different colors for relational lines, etc. may enhance the presentation of the information. Please do not use pencil for final presentation (smears too easily).
