create a sociogram
Create A Sociogram

Draw your family sociogram.

  • Begin by placing a circle somewhere on your paper to represent each member of your family.
  • Give each circle a name (Mom, Dad, Bob, Sally, Grandma, etc.)

Creating A Sociogram

What are the connections between the people in this family?

Draw arrows to indicate who selects to be close to whom? What person do each of the people like best?

Who do they not get along with? Use a color to represent dislike.

Draw your arrows from each person’s perspective.

What are the alliances?

sociogram evaluation
SOCIOGRAM EVALUATION

Answer these questions:

  • What circles did you draw first?
  • How do the sizes of the circles compare to each other? Who is larger, and who is smaller? Why do you think you drew them that way?
  • How are the circles placed in relation to each other (close, far away, on top, below, or next to each other)?
  • Did you erase or change anything, why?

SOCIOGRAM EVALUATION

5. Hold your drawing at arms length, squint your eyes, and look at it. Is there anything significant you did not mention previously that you now notice?

6. Who is the most popular (leader)?

7. Who is the least popular (isolate)? The isolate might also be the family scapegoat.

8. What are the major alliances? (Who is together?)

9. Are there any subgroups within the family?

10. Is the cohesion of this family high, medium, or low?

11. How do you feel about your family’s sociogram?

12. What, if anything, have you learned?

follow up homework
Follow-up Homework
  • Ask members of your family to draw their own versions of the sociogram without seeing yours first.
  • Do other people’s versions mesh with your version? Why? Why not?
  • What have you learned? Write one paragraph.
