Abstract

Family Communication Patterns Theory is a general theory of family communication that focuses on parent-child communication concerned with establishing a shared social reality. It identifies basic processes of coming to a shared agreement that impact not only concurrent communication behaviors, but long-term information processing, psychosocial, and behavioral outcomes as well.
