For this assignment you will use the GenoPro software and additional course resources to prepare a genogram

For this assignment you will use the GenoPro software and additional course resources to prepare a genogram of at least 3 generations of a fictional character family. You may create the genogram based on a TV or movie character, or you may create your own case. Please do not use your own family. You will also create a video using Kaltura reviewing the genogram and answering reflective questions listed below.
Part I (GenoPro Genogram Software)
You will need to download the GenoPro Genogram Software located in the Discussion Resources below.
Do not download the free trial form the home page entrance to GenoPro, but use the .exe link found behind the blue hyperlink. This is a school license that has been purchased for all students taking this course.
GenoPro is a Windows platform software and NOT compatible with a Macintosh. To complete this assignment, MAC users can utilize one of the four suggestions: 1) borrow a PC to complete the Genogram, 2) purchase and use iGenogram, 3) utilize other graphic software (i.e., Canva or Microsoft Word), or 4) NEATLY draw out the genogram by hand. Once completed, submit a PDF version of your final product in the discussion board along with your initial video.
Your genogram should include and identify the following:
Index Person: In constructing the genogram, identify the fictional character as the “index person” and complete the genogram on their family.
Focus: The focus of this genogram will be on family strengths and resilience, family patterns, rules or ways of being, and the overall health of the family. Of course, you should also address any issues and concerns that may be discovered; however, do not make the genogram problem-focused, even though this is typically how it is used in counseling.
Two preceding generations—that is, the genogram must include the index person, his/her parents, and his/her grandparents (3 generations, in all). It would also be imperative that, in the event of the index person being involved in a marital or significant relationship, mention must be made of the significant other involved, including their immediate family such as their parents, siblings, and children. In the case where the index person is either a parent or a grandparent, his/her children must be included in the genogram.
Use the symbols as illustrated within the GenoPro software to indicate the nature of many of the relationships among family members. Be sure to indicate the fictional character as the index person by drawing a double circle or double square around yourself. Do not forget to include the current date on the genogram.
Use the relationship lines to indicate significant relationships within the family system. Do not use the “normal” line provided by GenoPro. This only crowds the graphic and makes it difficult to read.
Include a legend at the bottom-right corner of the genogram document. The legend must only include items represented on the genogram.
In order to make it easy to understand, ensure that there are notes on the genogram graphic regarding people, family events, etc., in their appropriate places (for example, on the side of a relevant person or generation). Even though this is not required for the successful completion of the assignment, it may be helpful to “interview” other family members about important areas of their family history. It would also be a good idea toinclude labels (a word or two will do) about each family member’s strengths—especially those that are either known by the index person or have a relevant connection to them.
GenoPro gives you the freedom you need to manipulate your genogram to allow enhanced viewing on a computer system. You can shorten or lengthen lines, move entire family units around to maximize space, and more. Your objective is to work with the graph to create a genogram that is easy to view and can be understood at a glance.
