Beth and David are thinking about getting married when Beth finishes high school next spring. They have decided to seek premarital counseling, and have chosen you as their therapist. What will you discuss with them, based on the genogram Beth brings to the first session? Be creative! Invent additional characters and details.

The genogram is attached. Thank you very much!
