When the Past Meets the Present to Change the Future: Using Genograms by Colleen McHugh
A genogram is a graphical depiction of a family tree that is much like a descendancy chart. However, the genogram utilizes lines, shapes, colors and descriptives to indicate various relationship, medical, and social dynamics that exist within and between family members. Genealogists interested in researching family history will learn new information about who their ancestors were as people. They will also learn how to use the information from the genogram to predict and/or change negative influences in their own lives and families.
The class is taught in 2 parts: A slide show presentation describing the genogram followed by an in-class activity to teach members how to create a genogram.
