This is an example of a genogram of Erin Sunstrum. A genogram, also known as a Lapidus Schematic or McGoldrick-Gerson research, is a visual depiction of the connections. It is a chart meant to show in graphic form the complex psychological interactions that occur in a multigenerational family. A genogram is architecturally similar to a family tree, but it serves a totally different purpose. A genogram contains information regarding relationships and interactions. Education, job, significant life events, chronic diseases, social behaviors, familial ties, emotional relationships, and social contacts are all examples of supplementary data. Some genograms also include information on hereditary issues such as alcoholism, depression, illnesses, alliances, and living situations. EdrawMax allows you to construct your own Genogram from a selection of templates.
