Using graphics in pastoral counselling
Three techniques of Family Therapy, namely the genogram, the ecomap and GFS (Graphic Family Sculpting), are discussed and presented as usable in pastoral care. The article argues that these techniques are most useful in pastoral care because of the fact that the religious community, as stressed in the Bible, consists of families and groups. A sensitivity for the family of origin and other systems which every individual represents, is therefore most important in pastoral counselling. The fact that a situation of growth and understanding is being created in the process of using these techniques, is probably the most promising aspect.
