The Dialectic of Marital and Parental Relationships within the Stepfamily.
Cissna, Kenneth N.; And Others
Communication Monographs, v57 n1 p44-61 Mar 1990
Examines metacommunicational statements within stepfamily reorganization. Finds two relational tasks employed by couples: (1) to create marital solidarity by direct communication between mates and clear statements to the children regarding the priority of the marriage; and (2) to establish the stepparent's credibility as an authority in relationship with the stepchildren.
