Enmeshment establishes a dysfunctional, intricate, tangled style relationship which is unhealthy and can be a dangerous connection. It is most often seen in families. An example would be if a mother divorces or becomes a widow, she becomes enmeshed with her son. There is an uncomfortable closeness that is not appropriate for a mother-son relationship. Another example is when the emotional balance of one family member conveys that same feeling to other members. If one person is upset, the other members also become distressed. Often, the situation of the individual who was initially upset, gets misplaced by the intense engagement of the rest of the group.
