This week you will interview a family, and then illustrate their interfamilial relationships as well as their external support systems and stressors by creating a genogram and ecomap. You will then analyze the ecomap and genogram.
Review the ecomap and genogram in the textbook in Chapters 12, 13, 14, and 15. This will be your guide as you create a separate ecomap and genogram similar to that based on your interviewed family (there is also an example of the 2 separate figures on page 35 of the 6th edition text)
Include a legend consisting of genogram and ecomap symbols as shown in the text. If this is missing, there will be points deducted.
Write an analysis of the family relationship based on the concepts from the text and outside resources. This is where your 4 references will be used. The references should be peer reviewed journal articles that support your analysis portion of the paper and not how to create a genogram or ecomap. If such references are used, points will be deducted.
The genogram, ecomap and written information must all be in one APA formatted document. Should include a title page, body of paper, and reference page.
Assistance with creating help in constructing the genogram/ecomap. Here are instructions for Word, can also be used in Excel and PowerPoint.
In the Ribbon across the top of the page, click INSERT, then SHAPES and choose a rectangle, circle, or line.
Hover over the edge of the shape you’ve placed (cursor should turn into a four-headed arrow) and right-click. Choose ADD TEXT to add text to the center.
To move objects, hover over them until cursor becomes four-headed arrow, then drag and drop. You can change fill/color etc. by right-clicking and selecting FORMAT SHAPE.
Copy/paste is your best friend when drawing shapes, lines, etc. Once you have a shape created (or find a shape you like in another document), copy and reuse it.
Must include 4 references, 2 must be from course materials and 2 from peer reviewed references. As we are aware in week 4 there is only 1 required/recommended reference, you will use the Kaakinen text and 3 additional peer reviewed references to meet the guidelines of the assignment
Reference must be no older than 5 years (2015-2020) unless course material.
