Abstract

The aim of the study is to explore the process of microtransitions in families with adolescent children. Original methodological procedures were designed in order to have families as the objects of study and to analyze data with particular attention to the family process of change. A family interview focused on the adolescent and family change was conducted with 12 families having an adolescent child. As indicators of change, we used coordination and oscillation. Our results highlight different patterns of family interactions, illustrating various ways through which families deal with change. Conclusive remarks focus on the theoretical relevance of the study, the method and the implications for family practice and policy. Resumen El propósito de este estudio es analizar el proceso de microtransiciones en familias con hijos adolescentes. Se diseñaron procedimientos metodológicos originales para tener a familias como objetos de estudio y para analizar los datos prestando atención particularmente al proceso de cambio de la familia. Se realizó una entrevista familiar centrada en el cambio del adolescente y la familia con doce familias que tenían un hijo adolescente. Como indicadores de cambio, usamos la coordinación y la oscilación. Nuestros resultados destacan diferentes patrones de interacciones familiares y ponen de manifiesto varias maneras mediante las cuales las familias abordan los cambios. Las observaciones concluyentes se centran en la relevancia teórica del estudio, el método y las implicancias para la práctica y las políticas familiares.
