Family Mapping - Genograms

Genograms are pictorial family trees commonly used in medicine, psychology, social work, genetic research and education. They describe events like births, deaths, immigration, marriage, divorce, physical or psychiatric disease, conflicts, emotionality, dialogue and communication organized following hereditary patterns. Genograms are thus fingerprints of the emotional structure and medical history of a person in the context of a family. My interest in cases of social trauma led me beyond the common Genogram symbols into the creation of new ones to represent tragedy, human rights violations like disappearances and torture, but also resiliency and hope.
