Healing Genogram Workshop: Cultural, Familial, & Ancestral Practices

This will be a two-hour online workshop. In this workshop we will discuss specific historical contexts and contemporary intergenerational patterns of the Chicanx/Latinx community. A genogram is a specific type of diagram originally used in family therapy that outlines the history of the behavior patterns (such as divorce, close relationships, drug use) of a family over several generations. In this workshop, we will learn how to center historical and contemporary Chicanx cultural resources within one’s family history, via a Healing Genogram, to address current struggles, including traumas. Family stories and mesoamerican ancestral concepts will serve as guiding assets. We will use an adapted form of the Immigration Resource Genogram developed by Yznaga (2008) to map cultural assets with two case study applications as well as participants’ own stories so they may begin to construct their own Healing Genogram. Participants will work together in small break out groups.

As a result of participating, the attendee will be able to:

1. Identify the basic/foundational components of a genogram.


2. Describe at least two Mesoamerican worldview concepts applied for wellbeing.


3. Define intergenerational and historical trauma

*Program content focuses on application of psychological assessment and/or intervention methods that have overall consistent and credible empirical support in the contemporary peer reviewed scientific literature beyond those publications and other types of communications devoted primarily to the promotion of the approach.

Diversity Statement: The presentation content respects and attends to cultural, individual and role differences, specifically related to Chicanx and Latinx communities as evidenced by the title, program description, learning objectives and references.
