All in the Family The intergenerational factors that influence family relationships and behaviors can be mapped out in a genogram. These maps assist counselors in getting to know their patients, the family, and the family dynamics (Galvin, 2010). When gathering the information for my own family, there was not any new or shocking revelations. However, when the data was presented in the genogram, it became a revealing diagram of patterns and non-patterns of substance use and mental illness.

“The Decline of the Nuclear Family” In 1970, 40% of couples were married with children. 2013 marked a new low as only 19% of household were married with children. A nuclear family is usually described as a heterosexual marriage with the average of 2.5 children, became synonymous with the American dream philosophy in the mid-1940s. The nuclear family standard is rapidly on the decline in the United States. These declining number have a range of causes. The causes of the decline of the nuclear family are cohabitation, childfree couples, high divorces rates, and the introduction of LGBTQ families. The effects are increased self-fulfillment, serial monogamy, childhood psychological trauma and family diversity. Gay and lesbian marriages
There are many different laws and policies that the government put in place which will affect various social issues; in this case the family. Some sociologists believe that this social policy the government enforces can make the family far more diverse; whilst others disagree. An example of this social policy can be in China there is a ‘one-child policy’, which limits families from having more than one child and in the instance that they do have more the government can inflict a series of penalties, this policy is in place to control the population of China; ‘For a prosperous, powerful nation and a happy family, please use birth planning’. In the following item I intend to discuss how social policies and laws in the UK may have affect the
Assess sociological explanations of the nature and extent of family diversity today. (24 marks) In today's society, there are various alternatives from the typical family type. The top examples of these are lone-parent, cohabitation and reconstituted. But there are also some others such as same sex couples, single parent and multi-cultural families. There has been a decrease in the number of nuclear families in the UK and an increase in various other families such as single parent families. But the raise in single parent households has to do with the increase in divorce across the UK which means that more people are left having to support their children on their own unless they become a reconstituted family.
In the article Ms. Durrow states that in America they treat bi-racial people differently. The author states because she was black and have blue eyes. That was seen as unusual.

With a rich historical background of the sheep industry for the United States, political, sociological and economic events have driven the many courses of change since colonial times. Raising sheep and trading wool became a major enterprise and a central issue of the Revolutionary War. Imports of sheep from Spain during the 19th century provided a foundation of creating a national wool industry and helped the development of sheep industry in the west. The biological ability of sheep to efficiently produce fiber at fine quality and meat continues to be used as a valuable resource. The continuous reduction of sheep population has made a change in the production industry. It caused the wool and meat production to decline greatly. This presently
Race also known as ethnicities is a big topic, not just in the United States, but all over the World with all kinds of humans being that was once created by Adam and Eve. There is multiple race living in the United States that are known as Asian, African American, Hispanics, and others. My personal opinion on Asians are known with small eyes, straight hair, and ninety percent of the population are skinny. Another African Americans are known as tall, fit, and with different style hair, but mostly with puffy hair. Hispanics which is my race is a mix of everything because some of the population are either short or tall. Their body and hair are all kinds of different style especially in the U.S because they follow the trends in the community. When
PSYC 2103 Genogram Project A genogram is a type of family tree, but with more detailed information. It is often used as a diagnostic and assessment tool by physicians or counselors to obtain individual and family history in order to help in the establishment of a diagnosis and treatment plan.
We can learn from Longtown, Ohio to be united with everyone and accept everyone. Longtown is very historical because for almost 200 years, they people in Longtown have been interracial and accept all races. In paragraph one, it states “... Ohio leads a modern crossroads where black and white isn’t black and white, where interracial marriages have been happening for nearly two centuries.” I found this quote in the Washington Post article “Ohio town holds rare history: Races mix freely for nearly 200 years.” This article shows that all races are together and it does not matter what color skin anyone has, all that matters is how they act towards each other.
The objective of doing the genogram is to get to know the patient by gaining understanding of his/her family background. Assessing the family using systemic approach enables health care providers to learn about the ways in which family members interact, what are the family expectations and norms, how effective is
Programs Demographic information A total of five families will be participants in this relocation to Ripon Wisconsin and will be under my care for ninety days. Based on traditional family structures is has been deduced that each family will have on average five people, however we will not exclude families that have more than five members. I may come across this if the families want to bring with them extended family members such as grandparents or aunts and uncles. The families that I choose to bring do not necessarily have to be from Rwanda. During the genocide, there were Hutus who left the country because at the time it was not a good place to live and they fled to the surrounding countries. Some of these refugees stayed in those countries, while others went back to Rwanda only to face suspicion and scrutiny due to the genocide (Fisiy 1998). Due to this, I will be considering families in both circumstances, but I predict there will be more families wanting to leave Rwanda due to tensions still in the country. I plan on moving the families to Ripon at the beginning of August so they have a whole month of summer before having to adjust to cold Wisconsin temperatures. Along with letting the families adjust to the temperatures, I have picked August so if any of them want to attend any sort of school they can start with the rest of the state avoiding having to start at an awkward time.
Jet Paronable P4 Genealogy I am a proud Filipino. My roots originate deep in the poor country of the Philippines. As a Filipino my family is very family oriented, faith based, traditional, and industrious. Without these vital traits it may have not been possible for me to be in the United States. As a child, I was ashamed that I was Filipino merely by the fact that I didn't want to be a minority and I wanted to be an American like everyone else, but as I grew up and matured I came to recognize and respect who I really am and my true roots. Both my parent's ancestors consisted of poor farmers, miners, and housewives from the corrupt country of the Philippines. On my mother's side Ambrosh Sison and Juanita Sison are my great grandparents,
