This work aims to reﬂect in depth on the study of the inﬂuence of psychotic parents on child development through a review of a clinical study. We present the case of a six year old girl who is being treated in a Mental Health Center, whose mother suffers from a severe mental illness. We also defend the importance of a preventive approach or treatment that impinges on the child and family environment.
