The article focuses on the problem of aggressive-hostile relationships between children and parents in early childhood. A clinical case of a 4-yearold girl is used as an anchor point and proposes a diagnostic framework that considers different levels of observation: that of the characteristics of the child, that of the characteristics of parenting and coparenting and that of the multigeneration family environment. A therapeutic process is then presented demonstrating how - by working in distinct phases - it’s possible to interact with parents by supporting them in the strategies of managing the symptomatology of the child, and then gradually progressing to the discovery of multigenerational family stories that result coherent - both in terms of meaning and function - with the disorder presented through the request for therapeutic aid.
Keywords: Relational disturbances, DC: 0-5, developmental psychopathology, relational diagnosis, aggressive-hostile relation, multigenerational family therapy.
