Beyond the Genogram: Discovering the Gifts, Trauma and Resilience in the Family Tree
Genealogy researchers aren't the only people interested in the family tree. So are health and helping professionals, especially when they are looking for ancestral healing and change.
“Beyond the Genogram: Discovering the Gifts, Trauma and Resilience in the Family Tree” is the title of this professional training that will focus how to construct the genogram to understand the deeper inter-generational trauma in your clients’ family systems, as well as their strengths.
The training program is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, at the Samaritan Counseling Center, 1803 Oregon Pike, Lancaster, Pa.
In this training, instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we go beyond the “usual” genogram to focus not only on your clients, but on your clients’ family systems to reveal important information for a fuller understanding of their family and personal relationships, as well as the affects of inter-generational trauma on their relationships, emotions, physical health and well being.
We will look at the value of expanding the typical genogram diagram and learn a related – and highly useful – social atom diagram for therapeutic assessment, client awareness and as a warm up for deep experiential healing.
Karen will include teaching the use of action methods, particularly psychodrama, Family Constellations, guided imagery and the creative arts, to address family system information. The workshop will consist of didactic teaching, questions, demonstrations and opportunities to bring clinical case studies forward for supervision.
