Oppositional children and their families: an adaptational dance in space and time

Oppositional children and their families: an adaptational dance in space and time

American Journal of Orthopsychiatry 68(1): 147-153

A conceptual map is proposed in which oppositional behavior is seen as an adaptational struggle within a context of interpersonal and intrapsychic spheres of family systems. Preservation of self is viewed as inherent in all childhood psychological symptomatology, and oppositionalism serves as a prime survival strategy, aimed at navigating the conflictual forces of connectedness and individuation and regulating the progression, through time, of the family life cycle.
