Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines what is known and what requires further exploration in research on advice in family communication. Research about advice in families is largely drawn from human development, family therapy, and psychology, with only a few studies grounded in theories of advice and family communication. This chapter provides a synthetic review of this research, emphasizing who provides advice and how it functions across different types of familial relationships. The chapter also highlights relevant theoretical frameworks, including advice response theory, the integrated model of advice, and family systems theory. Finally, the chapter offers guidance specifically relevant to family members giving and receiving advice.

Keywords: advice, family, family systems, parenting, marriage, siblings, intergenerational
