Difficulties of Interaction with Codependents: System-Family Analysis

321

Abstract

The problem of addictive behavior and the search for effective psychosocial assistance programs remains relevant. The existing relationship between dysfunctions in the family and the formation of a dependent personality necessitates psycho-correctional work with family members. However, the position of co-dependent family members of an addict is often associated with resistance to change in the family situation. In the article, the difficulties in the interaction of specialists with co-dependents is considered through the prism of an analysis of systemic family processes and phe-nomena. Specific types of difficulties caused by violations in various parameters of the family sys-tem are highlighted. An analysis of family parameters and means of regulating intra- and extra-family interaction reveals hidden aspects of resistance to change on the part of a dysfunctional fami-ly and expands the possibilities for leveling its influence. Based on the results of the analysis, direc-tions for further research are proposed.
