Adolescents' Contributions to Family Communication Patterns.
Saphir, Melissa Nichols; Chaffee, Steven H.
Human Communication Research, v28 n1 p86-108 Jan 2002
Notes that early explications of family communication patterns (FCP) suggested a family's communication pattern arises from interactions in which parents and adolescents influence each other. Revisits the assumption that adolescents influence FCP, using data from a longitudinal quasi-experimental evaluation of a school-based civics curriculum intervention. Finds that adolescents communication influences adolescents' and parents' perceptions of FCP. (SG)
