SELVINI, Matteo. The future of psychotherapy: learning from mistakes. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2002, n.82, pp.9-21. ISSN 2340-2733.

In the first part Matteo Selvini discusses the historical theoretical mistake of family therapy in investigating the "non existing" family of the schizophrenic (or family of the anorexic). It is the theoretical mistake of looking for a lineal link symptom and family. The future is instead that of looking for a complex explanation of a less complex phenomenon loke personality traits. In the second part Matteo Selvini proposes the first data ot the follow-up of psychotic cases treated by Mara Selvini Palazzoli during the seventies and these data are compared with similar data of anorexia follow-up.

Keywords : personality; family; antisocial disorder; follow-up; psychotherapeutic protocols.
