[[Nathan Ackerman]]'s term '''homeodynamic principle''' refers to his observations, in the course of [[family therapy]], that families have a basic dynamic, and following an interruption to that dynamic (for example, an intervention by a [[psychotherapist]]), the previous family patterns tend to re-emerge, i.e., the family soon returns to its basic patterns, even if those patterns are dysfunctional.
