Complete the following in your analysis paper:
Family systems analysis identifies patterns and roles in how the family relates. Analyze your three-generational family genogram for intergenerational themes, relationship patterns, and life-cycle transitions. Ask yourself questions such as:
What are some emerging family patterns?
How have these patterns made me who I am, and what are my roles in my system?
How have these patterns and roles influenced my life?
What are significant cultural issues to consider?
What strengths are you proud of that have been passed along?
How does or how will your understanding of yourself from your genogram influence your work as a family therapist?
