Abstract

This study investigated how college-aged daughters' reports of family communication patterns between themselves and their fathers impact fathers' and daughters' interpersonal communication satisfaction with each other. Two hundred seven father-daughter dyads participated in the study using the Revised Family Communication Patterns instrument. Results revealed that conversation but not conformity orientation was associated with both daughters' and fathers' communication satisfaction. The implications of these results for enhancing interpersonal communication satisfaction between fathers and daughters are discussed.
