Family Tree: Using a family tree/genogram model (you may search the web to look for models to assist you in the development of a genogram) build a family tree that goes back two generations. The family tree should be built on a family that is NOT your own, but that of someone else (e.g., friend, co-worker, in-law, etc). Focus on family lineage, living arrangements, and communication patterns (who speak to whom, is there triangulation among family members). Within the tree, also discuss how family rituals, folklores, myths, violence etc impacted your family system development as a whole. The family tree should be accompanied by a 1-page or so narrative description of the family patterns. The narrative should include comments on the closeness of relationships, dysfunctional relationships and any triangulated relationships. The website referenced above provides definitions for each of these components.
