Transgenerational Genogram Analysis
Keywords:family tree, family dynamics, transgenerational genogram
The genogram technique was developed by Muray Bowen (1993) within the Family Systems Theory, based on studies in which transgenerational aspects within the family were followed. The cited author states that family problems are transmitted from one generation to another, subjects tending to reproduce behaviors that they learned socially from their ancestors (Zamoșteanu, n.d., pp. 23-25). The genogram (or family tree) is a method that can be helpful in understanding family dynamics and has also been used with adoptive and foster families.
