The Family: The Developmental Setting pdf free download. Studies of personality development and maldevelopment have been seriously impeded by a dearth of understanding of the central role of the family in directing the developmental process. The critical early stages of the life cycle, upon which all later development and the stability of the personality rest, take place in the nidus of the family. The stability and satisfaction of the lives of most adults depend greatly upon their marital and parental transactions
within their families of procreation. A very large proportion of the work in any dynamic psychotherapy is concerned with the reevaluation of parental influences and the reorganization of patient’s reactions to them, so he can be freed from deleterious internalizations and transferences that interfere with his interpersonal relationships and his own evaluation of himself. The various childhood phases of the life cycle unroll favorably or unfavorably not so much be cause of innate characteristics as because of the manner in which the parental figures and the intrafamilial transactions guide the child through the
phase. Attempts to study the young child’s development independently of the family setting distort even more than they simplify, for they leave out essential factors of the process.
