Fiese, Barbara H.
Family Relations, v42 n2 p187-92 Apr 1993
Examined rituals in alcoholic and nonalcoholic families. Data from 241 adolescents, 114 mothers, and 104 fathers revealed that children of alcoholics and children from nonalcoholic families differed on their report of meaning associated with family rituals. Found significant interactions between father-adolescent family ritual scores and adolescent health-related anxiety symptoms. Found inconsistent results for adolescent problem drinking. (Author/NB)
