Above is a family mapping tool illustrating family history and relationships. It is a practical tool in social work practice, both in terms of assessment and intervention. The genogram is most commonly thought of in relation to practice with children, adolescents, and families to explore the quality of relationships and behavioral patterns across generations. Genograms can also be helpful when working with adults and serve as a tool to examine issues of interest beyond family dynamics. EdrawMax benefits from using this genogram maker.
