Multiproblem families present different indicators of vulnerability, difficulties of a different nature and dysfunctional relational and communicational patterns that tend to be repeated transgenerationally. They are often at psychosocial risk and chronic sociocultural deprivation, perpetuating a cycle of poverty. This mixed methodology project follows an action-research design that aims to promote skills and empowert familiar. “Giving power” to these families in vulnerable situations, through a multidisciplinary intervention centered on the family, will contribute to their resilience, greater autonomy, self-organization, self-regulation and dealing with problems, promoting reflection and experiencing new forms of interaction. The project includes several moments (initial evaluation and intervention effect), focusing on individual and family variables.
