Additional Book Details

"Explaining Family Interactions represents a unique collection that may stand alone or complement a traditional textbook. The contents reflect the ever-changing nature of families and the role communication plays in creating and maintaining family relationships. The collection captures the wide universe of family experience as represented in fine scholarship."
--Kathleen M. Galvin,
Northwestern University
What relationship exists between family structure and communication? How do communication patterns between family members change over time? What role does culture play in family communication? In this groundbreaking volume, a stellar team of contributors answers these and other significant questions by offering a detailed review of current research and state-of-the-art ideas concerning both communication processes and family functioning. Contributors explore a rich tapestry of topics, including family conflict, courtship and dating relationships, postdivorce relations, communication and family culture, and dual-career families, to name but a few. And, while contributors each explore different aspects of family communication, all address similar questions and incorporate a range of methodological and/or theoretical positions.
Explaining Family Interactions is an ideal resource for all scholars and students in the fields of interpersonal communication, family studies, relationships, family sociology, and social psychology.
