Going Deeper with Families

with Mercedes Samudio, LCSW


About this Course

Remember Genograms? No! Here’s a quick refresher: Genograms are those amazingly informative and detailed family trees that helped you figure out how familial relationships influence the work you’re doing with families. While many of us haven’t thought to do one since graduate school, this training will reinvigorate your interest in doing Genograms with families and arm you with the tools you need to enhance your treatment of families.
