Self-Reflection Journal, Creation of Genogram, Sharing with a Confidant, and Writing of a Reflection 

Writing in a Self-Reflection Journal, Creation of Genogram, Sharing with a Confidant, and Writing of a Reflection Paper

  • 20 of the 30 points accounts for writing a paper (3 pages maximum, APA style) about your significant insights from your genogram.
  • 10 of the 30 points accounts for you writing within your paper about the experience you had in sharing your genogram insights with another person (not a classmate in this course). If you do not write in your paper about you sharing your genogram insights with another person, I will assume that you did not do this; thus, you will receive 0/10 points for this portion of the 30.

Throughout the course, you are expected to maintain a “Self-Reflection Journal,” in which you will make entries after each week’s class periods (beginning with the first week) about how ANY aspects of the class (e.g., readings, online and in-class discussions, article presentations, role-plays, small group interactions) are helping you better understand the dynamics and cultural characteristics of the family in which you grew up (i.e., your family of origin – FOO). (I will NOT be reading your self-reflection journal). In addition, you are expected to create your own family’s historical and cultural genogram (back to your grandparents) to better understand the family system in which you grew up. (Resources that may help you with creating your genogram include (but are not limited to): documents with symbols on our course’s Canvas page; the text – Genograms in Family Assessment is on reserve in Keffer Library; and computer genogram programs.) (I will NOT be looking at your genogram). During one of the last class periods on the last weekend of class, you will be expected to briefly share with your small group a new awareness that you gained from your genogram assignment.

You are expected to share what you have learned about your family with a person who is not in this course and is someone you trust (e.g., partner, close friend, parent, sibling). Write a reaction paper (3 pages maximum, APA style) about your experience of and the insights you’ve gleaned from creating your genogram, as well as your experience sharing it with another person. (You are required to write about your experience of sharing your genogram with another person). Upload your final paper to Canvas no later than 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13, 2022.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
