This research investigated how family communication patterns (FCP), based on conversation-orientation and conformity-orientation, were related to youngsters' self-disclosure to their parents. Data was collected through a questionnaire survey of youngsters in Hong Kong, aged 13-24. Questionnaires were distributed to students who were studying Communication at a local university. Another group of students was recruited who had younger siblings: they took a copy of the questionnaire home for the siblings to complete. The hypotheses were confirmed that youngsters in perceived pluralistic and consensual families reported more and deeper self-disclose to their parents. It was also found that youngsters' self-disclosure to parents varied among all four types of families: pluralistic, consensual, protective, and laissez-faire. These findings from a cross-cultural study supported the conceptualization of family communication patterns. (Contains 27 references and 3 tables of data.) (Author/RS)
