This work is dedicated to the research in psychotherapy and in particular to eating disorders (DCA), it explores and describes the family as a complex system, in which a plurality of dimensions and different levels interconnected are recognizable: a synchronic level and communication pattern that intersect a diachronic level of individual and collective stories, through which bonds and shared meanings are built. This exploration of levels, through the concept of myth, brings out the special features and the meanings in the family. In particular, the research dedicated to anorexia and bulimia highlights the prerogatives of family myths related to such forms of suffering. Finally, in this work such myths are explored through the instrument of the - Family Time Sculptures -, presented in their theoretical assumptions and clinical practice presented in a case of DCA.
Keywords: Family as a Complex System; Diachronic Level; Synchronic Level; Family Myths; the Family Time Sculptures
