Family Communication: Cohesion and Change examines how the communication processes within families affect and are affected by larger social systems.

By viewing the family as a communication system with identifiable patterns, the authors encourage students to observe family interaction patterns analytically and relate communication theories to family interaction. Using a framework of family functions, first-person narratives, and current research, Family Communication: Cohesion and Change emphasizes the diversity of today's families in terms of structure, ethnic patterns, and developmental experiences.
