In a revised edition of her revelatory work You Can Go Home Again, veteran family therapist Monica McGoldrick explains how understanding family patterns and history through the use of the genogram - a more in-depth version of the traditional family tree - can reveal a family's history of estrangement, alliance, divorce, suicide, or disease and help us to learn, grow, and deepen the bonds with our own families. McGoldrick uses famous families as examples to bring the discussion to life - the Obamas, the Ghandis, the Roosevelts, the Kennedy's, Frida Khalo, Freud, Che Guerva and the Hepburns, among others, are all included. By drawing on these examples and incorporating new illustrations and updated genograms, she shows how issues of sibling rivalry, birth order, family myth, marital relations and parent-child relationships can all play a role in how we perceive our family history, our sense of 'home,' and, therefore, our identity. In The Genogram Journey McGoldrick examines our collective past while informing us about how to use it wisely to shape the future.

A long-awaited workbook companion to Monica McGoldrick’s highly successful textbook Genograms. This clinical companion to the bestselling Genograms: Assessment & Intervention uses case examples to articulate the most effective ways to use genograms in clinical practice. Widely utilized by family therapists and health care professionals, the genogram is a graphic way of organizing the mass of information gathered during a family assessment and finding patterns in the family system for more targeted treatment. For a client with cutoff relationships or a history of trauma, it can be hard to talk to a therapist about past and present relationships. Genograms are a non-intrusive and non-confrontational way to learn about a client's history and chart crucial, complex information for effective assessment and therapy. The Genogram Casebook deploys richly detailed case examples to address resistance to genograms, overcoming dysfunctional relationship patterns, working with couples, navigating issues of divorce and remarriage, using genograms in family sessions with children, repairing conflict and cutoff with family members, looking at the therapist's own family, and much more. It's a vibrantly practical, decisively essential guide to the use of genograms in mental health practice.

Abnormal and clinical psychology courses are offered in psychology programs at universities worldwide, but the most recent major encyclopedia on the topic was published many years ago. Although general psychology handbooks and encyclopedias include essays on abnormal and clinical psychology, such works do not provide students with an accessible reference for understanding the full scope of the field. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Abnormal and Clinical Psychology, a 7-volume, A-Z work (print and electronic formats), will be such an authoritative work. Its more than 1,400 entries will provide information on fundamental approaches and theories, various mental health disorders, assessment tools and psychotherapeutic interventions, and the social, legal, and cultural frameworks that have contributed to debates in abnormal and clinical psychology. Key features include: 1,400 signed articles contained in 7 volumes and available in choice of print and/or electronic formats although organized A-to-Z, front matter includes a Reader’s Guide grouping related entries thematically back matter includes a Chronology, Resource Guide, Bibliography, and detailed Index entries conclude with References/Further Readings and Cross References to related entries the Index, Reader’s Guide themes, and Cross References between and among entries all combine to provide robust search-and-browse features in the electronic version.

The text features a ground-breaking integration of individual male and female development in systemic context; our increasing racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity; the emergence of men's movements and issues; the growing visibility of lesbian and gay families; and the neglected area of social class.
