Title: Family ritualization, family cohesion and adaptability, and a measure of intimate relationships outside the family
Authors: Oszadszky, Ilona
Issue Date: 1-Mar-1998
Abstract: This study examined the relationships between family rituals, family cohesion and adaptability, and intimacy in university students' interpersonal relationships outside their families. In addition, the relationships between these variables and four demographic variables (age, gender, years of university education completed by subjects, and parents' education) were also investigated. A theoretical model outlining the predicted relationships between these variables was presented. Subjects included male and female undergraduate students recruited from the introductory psychology subject pool at the University of Manitoba. Family rituals were assessed using the Family Ritual Questionnaire (FRQ) and family cohesion and adaptability were assessed using the Family Cohesion and Adaptability Evaluation Scales (FACES II). Furthermore, the Miller Social Intimacy Scale (MSIS) was used to assess intimacy in relationships outside the family. The data were analyzed using structural equation modelling procedures to determine the interrelationships between the variables in the model. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
