ABSTRACTIn this communication authors tried to analyze the dynamics of a family under the systemic paradigm viewpoint, in order to explain the conflict their integrants go through. With this purpose, it is necessary to move from the prevailing lineal epistemology-based therapeutic models to more complex models that emphasize the systemic approach. Thus, departing from the usual therapeutic models that behave according to classic sciences, where certainty, truth, and unique reality lead to an equilibrated world that provides answers and explanations to behaviors and diseases, it goes to complexity-based models that are introduced into a new epistemology that emphasizes a systemic look which makes relative the concepts and former views, and creates, according to Edgar Morin (1998), a new conception of the human being that builds up a theory about self-organizational procedures that are elemental for survival. Some proposals from modern-physics scientists that set forth other realities and the need of looking them from other perspectives and approaches are also quoted. The presentation of an atypical case in the Pediatric Pulmonology Service of the National Institute of Respiratory Diseases (INER) permits the understanding and the therapeutic approach from the systemic theory to the complexity of Morin, through the self-narrative of the family and the speech of the in-training therapists that describe what happens to the family, and how it affects to the therapists themselves. There are also included some reflections and comments done by professors and supervisors that join the Family Institute’s therapists in their training at the INER.
