[automatically translated] The family constitutes the psychic space in which the child begins to build the first models of self and the outside world. These are organized mainly outside of consciousness, around prototypical patterns arising from the incessant individual exposure and participation in the mode of "family thought" as the minimum transpersonal units (Lo Verso, 1994 Giannone, Lo Verso, 1996 Giannone, Ferraro, Lo Verso, in press). Faced with an extensive theoretical literature, lacking empirical contribution is able to give an account of the role that family relationships play in the self differentiation process. Observing these trends and study empirically may help to understand more deeply the operation and intervention possibilities. Under study are 36 families (125 individuals) - 18 in psychotherapeutic treatment and 18 who have never had psychotherapy request. They are analyzed: a) family cohesion variables, adaptability and differentiation of self, in each and between groups; b) individual variables cohesion, adaptability, differentiation of self, style of adult attachment and symptoms, in each and between groups; c) the association between the different family variables; between the different individual variables, and between household and individual variables in both groups. The instruments used: FACES III (Galimberti, Farina, 1990; Olson, Portner, Lavee, 1985); DSI (Skowron, Schitt, 2003); ASQ (Fossati et al., 2003; Feeney, Noller, Hanrahan, 1994); SCL-90 (Derogatis, 1992).
