Starting and Stopping Spontaneous Family Conflicts.
Vuchinich, Samuel
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n3 p591-601 Aug 1987
Examined how 52 nondistressed families managed spontaneous verbal conflicts during family dinners. Found conflict initiation to be evenly distributed across family roles. Extension of conflict was constrained by constant probability of a next conflict move occurring. Most conflicts ended with no resolution. Mothers were most active in closing conflicts. (Author/NB)
