generation Irish American, married to a Greek immigrant, her closest emotional
connection while growing up was to her African American caretaker, Margaret

family therapy work came to believe deeply in the importance of connections to
family and cultural history. She is internationally known for her writings and
teachings on topics including culture, class, gender, the family life cycle, loss,
family patterns (genograms), remarried families, and sibling relationships. Her
books include-Ethnicity and Family Therapy, 3rd ed; Genograms: Assessment and
