The Primary Family Problem is the unconscious belief that our parents, especially our mother, remain our primary family when we are adults. This can even be the case in marriages with one or both partners, and in fact it is one of the most common, yet unacknowledged, causes of relationship difficulties. Although Dr. Diamond has built on this work in many ways since he gave this seminar, nevertheless it stands out as an excellent, clear introduction to this most important topic. The lecture includes several case studies, and a detailed discussion of the syndrome in terms of the Acupuncture Emotional System, as well as the precise acupuncture points involved.
