LOAYSSA LARA, J. R.. A formating family in difficulties . Medifam [online]. 2001, vol.11, n.7, pp.49-54. ISSN 1131-5768.

The case of a young couple with a child is presented, where important conflicts between themselves and with their families have emerged and in which the wife suffers from acute emotional disturbance. This family faces many difficulties in accomplishing the relevant developmental tasks at this stage of their life cycle. These difficulties are mainly due to earlier problems in the wife's own family set off by her father's death and subsequently by the way that this family begin their life together, "jumping" phases of the life cycle. They marry and have a child with hardly any preparatory time spent previously together. The family doctor, taking the life cycle framework as a guide, can intervene to redirect the couples' relationship and improve their emotional climate. Given the magnitude of the task, longterm specilized help should be expected to be carried out and which the family doctor can help to initiate.
