Abstract: The family institution went through several historical and social processes that changed its dynamics until it was now tied by affection. However, the family continues to occupy a fundamental place in the present society and in the structuring of its offspring, regardless of its configurations. Against this background, this Bibliographic Review research aims to understand the influence of contemporary family on the emotional structure of young people in conflicts with the law. Starting from the detailed observation of various family transformations and the psychosocial and psychodynamic survey of a young man, this study identified significant contents that point us to the influence of contemporary family on the emotional structure of this population, among them, the introjection of laws and the way in which these young people deal with authority and frustrations. And with regard to the consequences of this process and its implications for these young people personality, when there are structural flaws in family relationships, a difficulty of this population in establishing affective relationships can be observed, as well as in dealing with authority, due to the antisocial personality characteristics and even to criminal behavior. This study aims to give a voice to a complex and often veiled theme in society, and to alert to the importance of the continuity of future research that will help us build better strategies and actions of public policies.
