Rueter, Martha A.; Conger, Rand D.
Child Development, v66 n1 p98-115 Feb 1995
Examined the relationship between individual interactional style, individual problem-solving behavior, and family problem-solving effectiveness in 431 intact rural families with 2 children, 1 of whom was in seventh grade. Results indicated that a hostile interactional style directly predicted destructive problem-solving behavior, whereas a warm interaction style related directly to constructive problem-solving behavior.
