Abstract:

"Family Communication carefully examines state-of-the-art research and theories of family communication and family relationships. In addition to presenting contemporary cutting-edge research, it also includes extensive presentation and application of classic theories and findings in family science that have informed current day understandings of essential family processes. This text represents a current and comprehensive presentation of information generated by principled research conducted throughout the world for both students and teachers of family communication, as well as for professionals who work with families and seek an evidence-based understanding of functional and dysfunctional family processes. New to the third edition is an expanded coverage of understudied family relationships and diverse family forms. Each chapter is carefully updated to include important new research findings generated over the past seven years (e.g., communication in families coping with military deployment, adoption, and same sex or transgender parents). The text is also accompanied by a companion website that provides additional resources for students: - extended case studies relevant to various topics and chapters in the book - a media guide with links to videos and other media relevant to certain topics covered in the book - an additional chapter for understanding different family communication research methods) For instructors, the companion website offers: - an extensive bank of discussion and test questions"--
