The author points out in the present work the general lines of psychological work with families. This work includes some fundamental assumptions: the absolute inseparability of intra-psychic and relational phenomena, the concept of human reality on four levels of the Quadrilateral, the concepts of Hypothesising, Circularity and Neutrality as guidelines for conducting sessions with a family. The paper describes the construction of a Systemic Hypothesis for a case and the intervention project that follows in order to describe the parameters to be used as indicators of change.
