    The aim of the Family Mapping Exercises (FMEs) is to explore and then chart the client’s self-definition of their family and the strength of their emotional, social, and practical connections with others in their family network. LGBTQ-parented families are often complex and rarely defined simply by biological or legal parenting. Thus, mapping family connections is often a useful exercise in beginning to understand a client’s relationship context and their own definition of family. Two different FMEs are available, one for adults (the Family Map for adults) and one for children (the Apple Tree Family).
