Greek term or phrase: επιστροφική
Είναι επιστημονικά διαδεδομένο πως για την ανάπτυξη της προσωπικότητας του ατόμου, υπάρχει η ανάγκη από βοήθεια και συμπαράσταση, όχι μόνο γιατί η εξέλιξη αυτή γίνεται μέσα από αντίξοες συνθήκες, αλλά και γιατί η πορεία προς την ωριμότητα δεν αποτελεί μια συνεχής και σταθερή κατάσταση, αλλά αντιθέτως είναι σταδιακή, προχωρητική και επιστροφική.
