WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF COMPREHENSIVE FAMILY THERAPY?
Professional aims were to potentiate the rearing transaction — the entire network of relations among parents and children — plus the children’s independent transactions.

Furthermore, the couple’s extrafamilial functioning was found related to both parental and marital process, requiring inclusion of the spouses’ independent transactions in the professional work.
