Description

This study sheds light on the influence family proceedings have on the communicative behaviors of Black young adults. Data was collected from a convenience sample ranging in age from 18-25 years. The instrument includes an argumentativeness scale consisting of 20 items (Infante & Rancer, 1982) which measured the student’s argumentative approach and avoidance behavior in interpersonal relationships. The hypotheses predicted that the dissolution of a parent’s marriage would have the greatest influence on a student’s cautious approach in establishing relationships, with those with parents who went through a contested divorce being more likely to exhibit higher levels of argumentativeness.
