Above is a genogram with health situation of 3 generation. A genogram is a graphic representation of a family tree that shows extensive information about individual relationships. It goes beyond a standard family tree in that it allows the user to examine hereditary patterns as well as psychological aspects that influence relationships. A therapist and his patient can use genograms to swiftly detect and comprehend distinct patterns in the patient's family history that may have influenced the patient's current mental state. A pedigree chart may miss relationships and traits that are mapped out in a genogram.
