Author Bio:
Michael J. Rohrbaugh, Ph.D. Professor of Psychology and Family Studies/Human Development University of Arizona Tucson AZ. Dr. Rohrbaugh’s research focuses on the role couple and family relationships play in maintaining problems like change-resistant smoking, adolescent drug abuse, and chronic heart disease, as well as on processes of therapeutic change. Several papers focus on couples in which one of the partners continues to smoke cigarettes despite having heart or lung disease. We have identified some couple-level processes that contribute to smoking maintenance and others ¬ like communal coping, marked by first-person plural pronoun use (we-talk) – that offer a powerful resource for change.
