Family Communication: Theories and Researchcombines the topical coverage of an overview text with the diversity of stance of an anthology, providing both breadth and depth in the field.nbsp;nbsp; In addition to overviews of research and theory, most chapters include research exemplars written by prominent and rising scholars in family communication. nbsp; Diversity is also focus throughout the book, with a variety of family types, perspectives, and experiences included to expose students to contemporary family dynamics. Family communication research typically proceeds from either a social scientific or humanistic/interpretive perspective.nbsp; This book includes research and theory from both perspectives, thus enabling use in programs that particularly embrace either option.
