There is a lot of information to take in when reading this book. I never would have thought there was so much to think about when going back through your families history. I didn't read every chapter, but what I read, and by putting together my very own genogram for my family stories class, I found out a lot about my family and the patterns throughout the multi generational theory. I definitely can see where clinicians would use genograms when working with clients.
Really interesting book on genograms. I never thought there was that much to know about genograms. I really liked how the authors used real life examples for the actual genograms. Famous people's genograms are shown along with just ordinary examples. All of the symbols are explained as well. Information on interviewing clients to put together a genogram is also given. Pretty good textbook.
I didn't finish the book, because after studying the charts and reading the first two chapters, it seemed pointless to finish. The technique was articulated well in the first few pages, and the examples brought the genogram to life. I felt no need to finish the book, especially with so many other books that I am more interested in.
