Abstract

The purpose of this article is to focus on an additional counselling tool that complements the genogram and that will enable counsellors to successfully utilise the time spent during a counselling session. The article sets forth the thoughts of socialisation as well as various social components that influence the construction of reality of the self. These social components elaborate on aspects such as our identities, our beliefs, our evaluation, regulating our behaviour and focusing on our sense of self. The main objective is to answer the question: What is the influence of social components on marriage counselling?
