The last decade, family’s role is therefore redefined and it has gained importance to become the main focus for dialogue for mental health services. The new interactions between the mental health services and the family have led to different requests and, thus, different expectations, tools and resources. Both services and family are essential to the patient’s journey towards rehabilitation, but the road is not without obstacles and conflict. Can the multiplication of opportunities for contact between psychiatric worker and family members, foster the emergence of attitudes of blame on the part of the psychiatric worker to the family members, based on the influence of these theoretical orientations systemic-relational beginning of the twentieth century that reorganized in the family to be a contributory cause of the suffering of their loved? This research was conducted in structures of public intervention in Rome. The characteristic of the relational context of investigation led to favor qualitative analysis tools. Twenty-six interviews were conducted with psychiatric worker.
