Format: Paperback
Family systems are facinating, dynamic, and multidimensional. Psycologists and counselors have developed systems for studying them. M. Bowen and Systems Theory are well linked to the development and use of genograms in family and individual therapy, for instance. Genogram are used in American Association of Marriage and Family Thereapists clinical training and supervision programs, and are an important tool in the clinical process. Medical schools and practices, genetic counselors, and even business and organizational settings find them useful. Genograms, though, have their limitations which the authors summarize well, proceeding to make a clear case for what they have developed: the Multilayered Focused Genogram (MFG). They make a graphic comparison of current genograms as normal X-ray exam, to MFG system which for them is like the hospital MRI exam, providing much more in-depth information. Actually, the MFG is a combination of the Basic Genogram, Family Map and Time Line, amplified with one or more Focused Genograms. It is an inclusive system of assessing issues in all aspects of a client's personal and multi-generational history as well as present day circumstances. I appreciate the format of the book for its clarity. In the first third, the authors address succinctly each of the three main components of MFGs using vignettes and rationals for collecting and organizing so much data about the client and his or her family system. They provide practical applications and diagrams for the clinician's immediate use.Read more ›
