Ebook Description

Focused Genograms provides a cutting-edge guide to utilizing the Intersystem Approach meta-framework and attachment theory to construct focused genograms. Focused genograms are graphic representations of intergenerational family interactions, and can be tailored to themes. This new volume includes nearly two decades of research, clinical experience, and theory; including rapidly expanding empirical support of attachment theory, gender, and trauma theory. It will allow the reader to comprehensively develop assessment and treatment planning for a wide range of client-systems. The clinical approach to using Focused Genograms traces intergenerational patterns of attachment and helps the therapist create an attachment-focused bond with client-systems of all types.
