Genogram Casebook

The Genogram Casebook

1st edition (W.W. Norton, 2016)

This clinical companion to the bestselling Genograms: Assessment and Intervention, uses case example to articulate the most effective ways to use genograms in clinical practice. Widely utilized by family therapists and health care professionals, the genogram is a graphic way of organizing the mass of information gathered during a family assessment and finding patterns in the family system for more targeted treatment.


“With clarity, depth, and heart, this book shows us how the genogram can be used to engage clients, master resistance, restore broken connection, and help our clients (and ourselves) resolve issues and move forward. The Genogram Casebook is so rich in theory and practical advice that as soon as I finished reading it, I started again.” —Harriet Lerner, PhD.; author of The Dance of Anger
