We look at values, relationships, rules, assumptions, and our place within larger histories of migration and social change. Each of us in turn will review our family history by devising and sharing a genogram, a detailed family tree used in counselling, with our small, supportive group. In discussions and exercises, and in listening to each other, we’ll share the experiences that made us, and gain insight into strengths that prepare us for the challenges of the future.
