In recent years, systemic theory have been characterized by a primacy of postmodernism and social constructionism, which identified therapy with a change in language or narrative, where any problem could be dissolved, rather that resolved. the present global crisis makes it necessary to build models based on a non-naive realism, accepting the necessity to deal with hard and non modifiable realities, at the same time preserving the systemic heritage of freedom, resilience, and emphasis on strengths. The article proposed some possible evolutions of the systemic model, that may allow to accept and relaunch such a challenge.
Keywords: Postmodernism, social constructionism, systemic model, economical crisis.
