Editorial Comments

Product Description:
This text provides for the first time in book form an exploration of the communicative aspects of the darker side of family life, ranging from, for example, severe acts of violence to more subtle forms of conflict. In addition to offering a working definition of the concept of the "dark side" in the family context, the authors propose the Darkness Model of Family Communication that integrates relevant literature in new and significant ways. Researchers, teachers and advanced students alike will benefit from the holistic and theoretical approach to the topic advanced through this volume. Readers are also encouraged to process the material by reviewing discussion questions and the case study of the Moore family at the end of each chapter.

Chapter topics include:

  • an overview of the "dark side" of family communication
  • individual influences on the darkness of family communication
  • the dark side of dyadic family life
  • familial interaction structure and the dark side
  • dark family communication in a context of darkness - socio-cultural influences on family life
  • concluding reflections on the study of dark family communication

The Dark Side of Family Communication offers an integrative understanding of the dark side of family communication and a theoretical mechanism for understanding related scholarship. It will be essential reading for all students and scholars of family communication.
