A mixed methods approach to studying communicative abilities among children of alcoholics. Thesis committee: Dr. Lena Chao (chair), Dr. Beryl Bellman, Dr. Chunsheng Bai B.A. Communication Studies - Cal State University, Long Beach - June, Area of Study: Rhetoric Research Interests My research focuses on examining communication patterns in high risk settings and the effects these patterns have on individual outcomes. My earlier work has explored how family communication patterns are shaped by the stressors introduced by an alcoholic family member and the role of communication in bolstering resilience among children of alcoholics. In past studies I have employed a mixed-method approach, incorporating survey data, coded interactions, and biomarker tools to facilitate a comprehensive view of communication behavior and effects. My current work examines communication patterns among health care providers, family members, and patients who are undergoing treatment in the VA health care network. General areas of study include interpersonal communication, family interaction, and health communication.
