Systemic thinking understands that there is interactivity between members of the same system, through feedback and, understanding families as systems, have their members influence each other mutually. For this reason, the present study seeks, through a case study, to demonstrate how this understanding and the systemic approach can contribute to individual psychotherapy through the case of the A.M patient. The understanding of this case will be approached from their family system, since, although the attendances have occurred individually, it is believed that their relationships and family interactions are very significant for understanding the situation and conducting psychotherapy.
