Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: In a genogram, they are identifying things like occupation, but they are also identifying particular themes and patterns that they begin to see present. For instance . . . in my own family, you'll see certain hereditary health patterns. But, it's not unusual, most people find mental health issues; they find chemical dependency issues; they find that they are cut off from certain family members; there's things that the family is not allowed to talk about; there are things that they always talk about that keeps a family member on the edge, never invited in. And so, that line, and it's completely imaginary, that we believe separates us from those we serve, slowly gets erased when we start to realize that the difference between us and those we serve is that one of us is receiving services and one of us is providing services. We have life circumstances that could very easily put me on the other side of that chair or desk.
