Transforming Life Narratives: Genograms, Context, Connection, Legacies and Having a Sense of Home
This workshop will be about the key dimensions for assessing human problems and evolving healing solutions. Genograms are the core mapping tool of this work and a map of who you belong to. Dr. McGoldrick will focus on viewing each person in the context of their cultural background, social class, gender and sexual orientation, family history, life cycle trajectory, and multiple identities.
- Use a genogram for assessing and intervening in family problems
- Consider the impact of their own cultural background on their values, ideas, and therapeutic approach
- Use systemic concepts to assess and bypass family cutoffs at multiple levels of the system–cultural, generational, interactional
