In this volume Loreen N. Olson, Elizabeth A. Baiocchi-Wagner, Jessica M. W. Kratzer, and Sarah E. Symonds shed much needed light on the dark side of family communication. By unearthing the layers of familial relating to reveal numerous caverns of darkness, they generate new landscapes for students and scholars of the dark side and family communication. Erin Willer, University of Denver Much has been written on the ‘dark side' of communication. This is the first book actually to define what dark communication is, explain how it forms, identify what effect it has, recommend how to ‘brighten it,' and tie all this together in a Darkness Model of Family Communication.
