Metaphoric Generative Genograms: A Journey to bring Genograms to life through metaphorical components
by Garcia, Elisa, D.M.F.T., Nova Southeastern University, 2015, 100; 10001432
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this dissertation is to offer a greater understanding of the potential of genograms through my clinical work from a Bowen Family Systems lens. I account for how I processed and effectively blended metaphorical components, by examining six cases from my two-year journal entries, of bringing genograms to life in sessions. I also explain how I created a useful tool, the Metaphoric Generative Genogram, that can benefit other clinicians working with children and families in the foster care community.
