The Interdependence Among Family Subsystems: What Increases the Linkages?

Family systems theorists have long maintained that each family relationship is embedded in a network of other family relationships with reciprocally occuring influences between the relationships. This talk examines why these influences across family subsystems are stronger in some families than in others. Conflict is a family process with the potential to spread from one family subsystem to another but, as data shows, certain family characteristics render some family systems more vulnerable than others to conflict contagion.
