This work represents a small contribution to the understanding of the complex relational reality characterizing the dynamics in place within families Anorexics. The underlying hypothesis from which we start is that there are no anorexic patients but anorexic systems, where one Member is spokeswoman, through the symptoms of discomfort felt by all. The introduction of the idea that each person’s diversity is a resource available to all, allowed the disbanding of those relational nodes kept standing by the myth of the family unit. The unveiling of the emotions, and the setting of new relational modes and communication have facilitated the evolution of that process of finding that starting on the other creates the identity of each.
