This work analyses the effects of the secrets on the family’s functioning and the consequences on the marriage and parental sphere. We will analyze the connection between secret and family myth and the aspects about their protective and defensive functions of the family members’ identities. Concerning the marriage and parental sphere, hypothesis about the effects of the secret on the definition of the relation between individuals and about the pathogenic nature of this family relationship style will be presented. Finally, we will focus on the therapist, both as a changing factor with respect to the secret disclosure and as a support to the family in the connection of the "time".
Keywords: Secret, family myth, extra-therapeutic communications, family’s relational style, genogram
