Genogram Symbols

A genogram, like an egomap, uses geometric symbols to mark relationships between people.  A handful of symbols cover the most common relationships.  But there are a LOT more, and for some people, skipping those is incomplete to the point of misleading or abusive.

This is a basic set with a few useful additions

This one is more multicultural.

Here is an extensive QUILTBAG set.

There's a lot of overlap but they don't use all the exact same symbols.  That's okay.  What matters is finding a way to diagram the relationships that are useful in a given context.  That can vary because these things are used in psychotherapy, genetic counseling, genealogy, sociology, linguistics, and so on.
