The aim of the current study is to assess the changes in the structure, family dynamics, and communication during a domiciliary family intervention with patients diagnosed with psychotic spectrum disorders showing resistance to treatment. A total of 12 families (36 participants) with offspring diagnosed with psychotic disorder were included. For data collection, different qualitative techniques were used in order to triangulate information coming from each of them: a questionnaire of open questions and a deepening questionnaire for the observers. The two axes that explain the relational dynamics most closely linked to the treatment resistance of these patients were “trust-distrust climate “and “claritycommunicational ambiguity”. These indicators can dynamically change and interact with each other for the benefit of improving family climate and communication.
