Family mapping is a technique using symbols to draw family relationship patterns inclusive of identifying apparent power, influence, conflict and trauma. A family map, although using similar symbols, differs from a genogram in that it is subjective rather than factual yet provides real-time impressions of current relationships between family members. It organizes and displays clinical impressions, helps integrate a systemic focus, applies to all family compositions, and formulates next-step goals and interventions. An added benefit is that family mapping can be taught to families for them to utilize in their own treatment.
