Interpersonal Influence in Family Systems: A Social Relations Model Analysis.
Cook, William L.
Child Development, v72 n4 p1179-97 Jul-Aug 2001
This study examined the degree to which members in two-parent two-child families of adolescents influenced one another. Social relations analyses indicated that characteristics of the partner and the unique actor-partner "fit" were systematic sources of interpersonal influence, and that reciprocal influence was present in most family dyads. A pattern was identified in which parents compensate for each other's influenceability. (Author/KB)
