The family model has undergone changes throughout history. Beyond the differences typical of different societies, traditions and values, the family structure has remained constituting a fundamental base in the processes of emotional, affective and relational construction of people.
The socialization process has two fundamental axes: Identity and Belonging. Both are closely linked to the learning and experiences lived in our childhood and within the family.

In recent times, as in many other fields, we are witnessing a vertiginous acceleration of changes, visions and formulations of the family fact. It is very difficult nowadays to talk about family, since we are witnessing the diversification of family structures and therefore it seems more appropriate to speak of “families”. This, which for some supposes a chaotic perception in which “anything goes”, for others supposes the possibility of being able to conceive the family fact as a diverse, adaptable reality and where what is really essential is not the rigidity of the structure, but the possibility of that people develop in affective and welcoming environments that allow the development of their capacities.

Our goal in this workshop is not conceptual definition. It is to analyze different family realities and consider the obstacles they present and the possibilities they offer for the growth of its members.
