Defensive Communication Climate as a Barrier to Sex Education in the Home.
Rozema, Hazel J.
Family Relations, v35 n4 p531-37 Oct 1986
Used Gibb's categories of supportive and defensive communication climates to investigate communication climate during discussions of sexuality between undergraduates (N=194) and their parents and undergraduates and their closest fiends. Gibb's categories could be collapsed into one factor labeled communication climate; climate between parents and child was more defensive than climate between peers during discussions of sexuality.
