This paper deals with what seems an insufficiently explored aspect of psychoanalytic practice: the ripple effect of a patient's evolution on the present and future of his or her significant others. Clinical vignettes are provided to illustrate patients' influence on relatives; patients acting as therapists; psychoanalysis by proxy; the ripple effect in psychotherapy; and some countertransference problems. The psychic lives of individuals not in treatment may be considerably affected by their interactions with our patients; seemingly, extraclinical character adjustments may ensue...

Reviews panels on the prevention of preterm birth (PTB) conducted by the Office of the Surgeon General and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development made numerous novel recommendations for research on the assessment of risk factors for PTB and the development of personalized, specific interventions for the prevention of PTB. This paper discusses the particularly significant roles for nurses in assessment and intervention based on their education in pregnancy and in multiple health-related disciplines...

This pilot study examined effects of Parent Skills with Behavioral Couples Therapy (PSBCT) on substance use, parenting, and relationship conflict among fathers with alcohol use disorders. Male participants (N = 30) entering outpatient alcohol treatment, their female partners, and a custodial child (8 to 12 years) were randomly assigned to (a) PSBCT; (b) Behavioral Couples Therapy (BCT); or (c) Individual-Based Treatment (IBT). Children were not actively involved in treatment. Parents completed measures of substance use, couples' dyadic adjustment, partner violence, parenting, and Child Protection Services (CPS) involvement at pretreatment, posttreatment, 6- and 12-month follow-up...

METHOD: Seventy-five multiethnic preschool mother dyads from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds were randomly assigned to (1) CPP or (2) case management plus community referral for individual treatment. CPP consisted of weekly parent-child sessions for 1 year monitored for integrity with the use of a treatment manual and intensive training and supervision...

The aim of this mental health promotion initiative was to evaluate the effectiveness of a universally delivered group behavioral family intervention (BFI) in preventing behavior problems in children. This study investigates the transferability of an efficacious clinical program to a universal prevention intervention delivered through child and community health services targeting parents of preschoolers within a metropolitan health region. A quasi-experimental two-group (BFI, n = 804 vs. Comparison group, n = 806) longitudinal design followed preschool aged children and their parents over a 2-year period...

This study used observational assessments of 57 2-parent families working and playing together when their eldest child was in kindergarten and again in Grade 4 to identify distinct patterns of family functioning derived from structural family systems theory for (a) cohesive, (b) separate, and (c) triangulated families. Little consistency in family type from early to middle childhood was indicated. No significant mean differences were found in teacher reports of children's externalizing behavior in their Grade 1 classrooms for children in cohesive or triangulated families...

The study compared the effect of couples-based versus individual-based therapy for men who entered outpatient substance abuse treatment on the psychosocial functioning of children in their homes. Men were randomly assigned to (a) behavioral couples therapy (BCT), (b) individual-based treatment (IBT), or (c) couples-based psychoeducational attention control treatment (PACT). For both children of alcohol--(N = 71) and drug-abusing men (N = 64), parents' ratings of children's psychosocial functioning was higher for children whose fathers participated in BCT at posttreatment and at 6- and 12-month follow-up than for children whose fathers participated in IBT or PACT...

Looking at the field as a whole through metaanalysis, Shadish et al concluded (based on 162 studies) that marital and family therapies were significantly more effective than no treatment and at least as effective as other forms of psychotherapy. Although these reviews and others are positive, individual studies raise many questions. For instance, based on research findings, family treatments increasingly have become standard care for patients with schizophrenia. It remains unclear what degree and type of family involvement is needed for which patients at which stage of their disorder...

Children influence families and families influence children. Individuals create a family, and a family is more than a sum of its individuals. These dialectic views are at the heart of the clinical application of the integration of individual and family therapy. Any attempt to treat the mental disorders of children and adolescents must consider both views and their treatment implications. The use of combined therapeutic modalities can offer more flexibility, specificity, and precision for the treatment process...

In many cases today successful psychotherapy does not seem to be conceivable without inclusion of the patient's family in the treatment. After a review of the literature the families' perception of the in-patient psychotherapy of one of their members, their transference-patterns towards the ward team, the typical counter-transference responses of the team to the family, indications and counter-indications to family therapy sessions as well as role-conflicts of the therapists are described.

Task-focused psychotherapy for children relies on Piaget's formulations of children's learning through concrete exchanges in the environment. The therapeutic task is designed to embody the child's conflict and to permit therapist and child to share experiences which aid the child in finding a new behavioral and/or conceptual resolution. Children's conflicts are seen as maintained by continuing interactions on the part of the family which allow, foster orperpetuate the troublesome behavior or painful concept of the child...

The working hypothesis could be confirmed that a nuclear syndrome (Basis-syndrom) consisting of alterations in drive and mood as well as in autonomic activation, possibly contributing to neurotic disorders, is independent of such factors as sex, education, premorbid personality, duration of illness, age at onset of the illness, social mobility during the illness, number of pregnancies, family history, occupation, marital state, social class compared with that of parents, social contacts, or past physical illnesses...

As increasing numbers of gay/lesbian parents and their children enter into "stepfamily-like" relationships with a gay partner, they are beginning to seek therapy for difficulties peculiar to stepfamily living involving two same-sex partners. This paper focuses on the difficulties experienced by gay parents and children in a step-relationship, and seeks to sensitize mental health professionals to issues specific to intervention with such families. Effective therapy with these families requires that therapists be sensitive to their personal biases and prejudices with regard to gay men and women in general and as parents, and be aware that such attitudes can intrude and negatively affect the therapeutic process and its outcomes...

The following study on family groups of patients with Huntington's chorea shows the changed psychosocial life patterns resulting from the disease of the marriage partner, as seen from the viewpoint of the other partner. It is evident that "family groups" are not necessarily self-sustaining, and cannot manage the additional strain without outside help; as a matter of fact, the limits of familial self-help become very apparent if the partner cannot cope with the burden. In this manner, family groups actually emphasise and underline the need for external social support...
