Assessing Genograms 


Based on the video The Legacy of Unresolved Loss: A Family Systems Approach and your readings from the DeMaria, Weeks, and Twist text, consider the scenario presented in the video. The client, David Rogers, seemed to be getting annoyed with the questions regarding his family. He did not seem to feel the questions were a proper use of time. Address the following:

•How do you think McGoldrick explained the purpose of the genogram and the therapy session?

•How did the therapist engage each family member in the therapeutic process?

•How did she develop the clinical relationship?
