Synopsis

Engaging Theories in Family Communication Multiple Perspectives by Dawn Braithwaite

Engaging Theories in Family Communication, Second Edition delves deeply into the key theories in family communication, focusing both on those theories originating within the communication discipline and allied disciplines. Contributors write on their specific areas of expertise, resulting in an exceptional resource for scholars and students alike, who seek to understand theories spanning myriad topics, perspectives, and approaches. Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying family communication, this text is also relevant for scholars and students of personal relationships, interpersonal communication, and family studies. This second edition includes 16 new theories and an updated study of the state of family communication. Each chapter follows a common pattern for easy comparison between theories.
