Family Communication: Cohesion and Change encourages students to think critically about family interaction patterns and to analyze them using a variety of communication theories. Using a framework of family functions, current research, and first-person narratives, this text emphasizes the diversity of today's families in structure, ethnic patterns, gender socialization, and developmental experiences.
New for the tenth edition are expanded pedagogical features to improve learning and retention, as well as updates on current theory and research integrated throughout the chapters for timely analysis and discussion. Cases and research featured in each chapter provide examples of concepts and themes, and a companion website offers expanded resources for instructors and students.

"What began as a trailblazing family communication text remains one to this day. Professors Galvin, Braithwaite, Schrodt, and Bylund have crafted a student-focused program that honors the history of family communication while pushing its boundaries. Anyone wanting to understand family dynamics better will find this text to be of tremendous value."
