With a synthesis of research on issues key to understanding family interaction, as well as an analysis of many theoretical and methodological choices made by researchers studying family communication, the Handbook serves to advance the field by reframing old questions and stimulating new ones. The contents are comprised of chapters covering:

theoretical and methodological issues influencing current conceptions of family;

research and theory centering around the family life course

communication occurring in a variety of family forms

individual family members and their relationships

dynamic communication processes taking place in families

family communication embedded in social, cultural, and physical contexts.

Key changes to the second edition include:

updates throughout, providing a thorough and up-to-date overview of research and theory

new topics reflecting the growth of the discipline, including chapters on "singles" as family members, emerging adults, and physiology and physical health.

Highlighting the work of scholars across disciplines--communication, social psychology, clinical psychology, sociology, family studies, and others--this volume captures the breadth and depth of research on family communication and family relationships. The well-known contributors approach family interaction from a variety of theoretical perspectives and focus on topics ranging from the influence of structural characteristics on family relationships to the importance of specific communication processes.
