Abstract

The authors identify characteristics of family organization and functioning associated with psychosomatic illness in children—specifically chronic, severe, relapsing asthma—and report on a successful therapeutic approach designed to change these family characteristics. Weekly outpatient family therapy sessions focused on alleviating asthmatic symptoms, identifying and changing family patterns that exacerbate symptoms, and intervening to change the family system to prevent a recurrence of the symptoms.
