Presenter: Rozi P. Wax LMFT, LMHC
This webinar offers 1 NYS ED Self Study Credits
The development of a multi-generational Genogram is an essential tool in case conceptualization. If done efficiently and effectively not only does it create a complete picture of the resources and needs, but it can also become a very effective icebreaking tool during the intake session.
The development of the Genogram will be modeled in the form of a mock intake session. The viewers will be able to see how it is introduced and how very detailed information about the clients' background can be generated in an emotionally safe context. The different functions and utilization formats of the Genogram will be discussed. There will be an explanation and description of the codes techniques used. There will also be a question and answer time available.
