A complex path, the traumatic intercharge of a daughter, which inserts herself into the unresolved problems of the parental couple. Therapeutic relationship: play the game without being overwhelmed by emotions. The therapy works on two relational levels, marital and parental, availing of the therapeutic analogical techniques: a systemic narrative, the mythic and phenomenological sculptures. The couple malaise reappears. The couple commitment, with a paradoxical prescription, is returned to the couple itself. In the end some considerations on the therapeutic relationship are discussed.

Keywords: Couple Terapy; Complexity; Metaphorical and Analogical Tecniques; Therapeutic Relationship.
