There are many benefits derived from families, but not all family members are loving and accepting. Family members may act as sources of ostracism (people or groups who ostracize another person/group). We suggest sources engage in family ostracism for extended periods, their motives fit with prior theoretical models, and trait-level forgiveness may...

Family businesses comprise the largest portion of organizations in the United States. Although much is known about how individuals interact in these businesses, little is known about how family businesses function at an organizational level. Family businesses are likely to use strategic ambiguity in their mission statements to allow for multiple in...

... Immediacy is described as the perception of approachability and psychological closeness (Ellis et al., 2016) and is associated with a greater relational connection between health care providers and their patients (Kreps & Neuhauser, 2013). Interestingly, individuals devise plans to pursue both primary and secondary goals (Dillard, 1990), however, the goals identified in Study One were not relationally focused. ...
... When these resources are threatened or lost, individuals experience more stress (Grandey & Cropanzano, 1999;Hobfoll, 2001). In this regard, we argue that family ostracism represents a threat to valuable resources (i.e., connections with close others; Poulsen & Carmon, 2015) and affected individuals are likely to consume the energy required to fulfill work responsibilities on their family roles. For instance, targets of family ostracism may be inclined to direct considerable resources (e.g., energy or time) toward their family roles in the hope of restoring valued positive interactions or connections with family members. ...
... Satisfaction or dissatisfaction is related to the specificity of an individual's perception of relations between family members and the evaluation of subjective and objective living conditions. Over the past two decades, research has been conducted to explore the relationship between family life satisfaction and the following variables: family leisure time satisfaction (Agate et a., 2009;Hodge et al., 2017;Poff et al., 2010aPoff et al., , 2010bZabriskie & McCormick, 2003), father involvement in family leisure (Buswell et al., 2012), marital satisfaction (Sharaievska, 2012), wives' or husbands' depressive symptoms (Schnettler et al., 2019), job and work-life balance (Camron et al., 2013;Turliuc & Buliga, 2014), and psychological well-being (Mills et al., 1992). Studies on family life satisfaction judgments were carried out from various perspectives of family members, namely, parents, young adults, adolescents, wives, and husbands (cf. ...
... On the other hand, they were less likely to feel guilty when experienced incivility and thus, maintained family satisfaction. According to [30], family satisfaction is an indicator of non-professional well-being characterized by individuals' satisfaction level with their family relationships [31]. ...
... Eisenberg sprach bereits 2007 von Hunderten von Zitaten im Bereich der Kommunikations-und Organisationsforschung (Eisenberg 2007). Die Anwendung reicht von Studien zu strategischer Ambiguität in Mission Statements (Carmon 2013) bis hin zu Veränderungssituationen in Organisationen des öffentlichen Sektors (Leitch und Davenport 2002). Besonders intensiv wurde es in der Forschung zur Krisenkommunikation angewandt. ...
... Researchers have conducted studies specific to intimacy and relational quality (e.g., Impett, Peplau, & Gable, 2005;Muise, Impett, Kogan, & Desmarais, 2013;Pearson, Child, Carmon, & Miller, 2009). However, in only one study to our knowledge, have researchers examined intimacy behaviors (e.g., kissing, holding hands, and making love) as relational sacrifices and their impact on relationship quality for couples (Burke & Young, 2012, discussed previously). ...
... Fourth, the definition of generational status in the present study includes the educational status of siblings, which is an approach that has been used by other studies (Inman and Mayes 1999;London 1989;Pearson et al. 2008;Strage 1999;York-Anderson and Bowman 1991). However, most definitions of generational status focus exclusively on parental educational status, and the possibility that our results are unique to our definition cannot be excluded. ...
... These rituals naturally become part of our shared social space; they "reflect the past and shape the future" (Person et al., 2010: 466). Ritualistic communication is also central to maintaining personal connection; it helps people feel a sense of belonging to the communities and relationships that fill their lives (Carey, 1992;Person et al., 2010). ...
... Frank (1995) wrote that terminal illness, the dying process, and loss are extremely disruptive to the daily experiences, communication, and overall life stories of the families experiencing them. Family communication largely determines grief and bereavement experiences (Basinger et al., 2016;Carmon et al., 2010;Toller, 2008Toller, , 2011. While humans are naturally inclined to tell stories and make meaning out of the difficulties they come up against across their lifetime (Fisher, 1987), serious disease and death can uniquely impact the degree to which families are able to make sense because they inflict damage on the family's sense of identity and temporality (Frank, 1995). ...
