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.
