Family Communication Research: A Critical Review of Approaches, Methodologies and Substantive Findings.
Bochner, Arthur P.
At present, the interaction-oriented approach dominates psychiatric research and clinical practice in conjoint family therapy and also permeates much of the work in family and group sociology. This paper focuses on the communication variables which have been measured in family interaction therapy, the ways in which family interaction investigators have measured them, and some significant weaknesses, both conceptual and methodological, in existing family communication research. A list of references is included. (JM)
