As the exercise shortly details, a disengaged family is characterised by the lack of attention to each other, by the little interest in each other. They are withdrawn emotionally; can't gather enough interest to even share a meal together. The family system is meant to take a whole a family as a group of individuals but not picking them apart. It was first introduced by Dr. Murray Bowen who understood that this individuals could not be understood separated from one another, but together.
