The psychologic adaptation of children with malignancies is influenced by the strategies that both the relatives and the other members of the family employ as a reaction towards the disease and the therapeutic progress. Our experience in the Department of Hematology of the University "La Sapienza": by carefully observing the communication styles, the distribution of roles, and the modification of the family organization up to the eventual adaptation to the disease, we have been able to identify various reaction typologies of the family, and also to evaluate their frequency and their varying functionality with time. A thorough analysis of these modalities of reaction may allow prompt recognition of problems related with psychologic and social adaptation of both the pediatric patient and his family, and may allow the adoption of pertinent strategies of intervention, in order to guarantee a better compliance throughout the whole therapy.
