"The first text to examine the functional family from a communication perspective, Family Communication: Cohesion and Change looks at the range of communication patterns exhibited by families. Family Communication emphasizes the enormous diversity of families today in terms of both structure and cultural heritage. It is also the only text to provide students with a consistent framework for analyzing the patterns of interaction within families. First-person stories from real people throughout the text help students to relate concepts and research to everyday life and to see how course material can be applied to their own lives."--BOOK JACKET.
