CALLEJAS-CALLEJAS, Albeiro  and  SANCHEZ-JIMENEZ, María Hilda. Conflicts and family changes: meanings associated with the consumption of psychoactive substances. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.2, pp.244-265. ISSN 1692-715X.

The paper presents co-constructed socio-family contexts, the meanings given to conflict and the family changes associated with the consumption of psychoactive substances by a teenage child. The authors describe the results of a qualitative-hermeneutic investigation supported by the grounded theory method and its interpretation is based on epistemological elements of social constructionism. The results show movements, relationships and strategies related to: patterns of interaction that combine social and family problems and changes; emotional alterations; and the predominance of violent relationships. The authors conclude that the worsening of conflict occurs within the framework of fractured relationships that depend on the meaning related to the roles of parents, violent relational patterns and confused and contradictory emotions in family relationships.

Keywords : Drug addiction; parent-child relationship; adolescent; family life and conflict.
