A genogram is a graphical representation of one’s family relationship and history. It is not limited to a family tree as it captures the hereditary patterns of medical and psychological facts in a family.

How to Create a Genogram?

  • Find the objective to create a genogram - Identify the requirement to create a genogram. For example, Prevention of diseases in a family by analyzing the family’s medical history.

  • Know the scope of the genogram - Know for how many generations the information is available and determine the type of family information you want to gather from your clients.

  • Gather information - Prepare a survey to collect information. Questions should focus on gathering information on family relationships, the quality of family relationships, medical conditions, and important events. You can also find more information on family books, from internet research, medical records, etc.

  • Visualize information - Using a Creately genogram template, visually represent the information you have gathered.
    1. Use squares to represent male family members and circles to represent female ones.
    2. Start the genogram with the oldest generation. Using the relevant genogram symbols for family members and relationships, convey the family interactions.

  • Analyze the information - Thoroughly analyze the unions and patterns between family members. For example, marriages, divorces, children, etc. Try to understand the status of the emotional relationships they have with each other. You will be able to gather information on family history of illnesses, relationship issues, etc.

  • Share for collaboration and present the genogram - As required, you can invite your client to edit the genogram by sharing it with them. You can also download it as a PDF, image, or SVG or use the add-on to add to presentations and documents.
