Family types

Have been reading and studying about family systems theory in my Family Faith Development doctoral class.  Here is a link to an article that describes three possible family types.

  • Cohesive: Characterized by emotional warmth.
  • Disengaged: Characterized by cold, controlling and withdrawn relationships.
  • Enmeshed: Characterized by moderate warmth and emotional involvement, but also hostility and meddling.
