Assessment of the Use of Spiritual Genograms in Counselor Education
Willow, Rebecca A.; Tobin, David J.; Toner, Susan
Counseling and Values, v53 n3 p214 Apr 2009
Spiritual genograms collect and organize family information of a religious or spiritual nature. The authors explored the use of the spiritual genogram in counselor education. Graduate counseling students were assigned to construct and present a spiritual genogram within a course titled "Counseling and Spirituality." An assessment of the quality of the students' learning experiences was conducted. Narrative responses were gathered from 32 advanced and postgraduate students enrolled in 1 of 4 classes over a 2-year period. The results verified the benefits of this constructivist and experiential learning process. Implications for counselor development and further research are discussed.
