PADILHA, Cristina dos Santos; SEIDLER, Joseana Garcez da Luz  y  SILVA, Danielle Doss Damo Martins da. Problems of children's behavior in the family context: contributions from systemic therapy. Pensando fam. [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.2, pp. 43-57. ISSN 1679-494X.

The present article aims to articulate elements of a clinical family service using the systemic referential. The aim is to understand the influences of the family system, specifically the conjugal subsystem, for the outbreak of and perpetuation of children's challenging symptoms. This qualitative study uses the methodological approach of the clinical case study, it describes the process of systemic family therapy of the five-year-old child identified as Maiara. Seven appointments were offered, but the family only attended four of them. The results show that the child, with her convulsive crisis and challenging attitudes, expresses a difficulty of the family group, more specifically a marital crisis that was getting worse after the arrival of the children. It is considered that the sessions performed helped the family to deal with the necessary changes in their lives and this avoided the emotional overload of the family members, as well as the somatization of the identified patient.

Palabras clave : Systemic therapy; Child's challenging symptoms; Marital crisis.
