What is a Genogram Symbol Sheet Worksheet? 

Often we get to see various behavioral patterns or certain complications associated with a family. A genogram is a pictorial display of a person’s family relationships which will help to track illnesses running through families. It will also allow the user to view multiple relationship dynamics, review developmental influence, and identify trends. 

How will a Genogram Symbol Sheet Worksheet help? 

A genogram is a multi-generational diagram of a person’s family and social network. It is a structure similar to a family tree, but serves a very different purpose. Using a combination of special rules and symbols, you will be able to include information about several generations. It is a multidimensional approach that utilizes emotional behaviour, lifespan, and other behaviours. It analyzes hereditary patterns and psychological factors that punctuate relationships.

Whenever you feel the presence of an established pattern, or a certain behaviour that is repetitive, you can pen it down using the genogram info worksheet. Defining the behaviour using special rules and symbols will allow you to get a clear picture of the pattern being followed within the family. Since the genogram takes successive generations into account, you can identify the existence of a new or an old pattern/trend within the family.
