how your Genogram affects your current behavior

GENERAL QUESTIONS IN CONSTRUCTING A GENOGRAM OR DRAWING YOUR OWN GENOGRAM

The following are some general questions you can ask a family member or yourself about the family Genogram (author unknown). Use these questions as a general guide for interviewing and writing your paper and if you wish develop further questions that pertain to your particular family setting. Include as much detail as possible. After drawing your Genogram, take a few minutes to interpret your personal Genogram, including the repetitive patterns that stand out in your family and how your Genogram affects your current behavior and assumptions. Also, note what information you do not have, and why it is that this information is missing. Always date your Genogram.
