  • 1. Family  Communica-on  A  Collage  of  the  Taylor  Family  from   NBC’s  hit  television  series:   Friday  Night  Lights   By  Corey  Randall  
  • 2. The  Taylors  •  I  chose  to  analyze  the   Taylors  because  I  really   enjoyed  watching  the  show   Friday  Night  Lights  and  I   thought  that  their  family   system  had  an  interes-ng   dynamic  to  it.  •  The  Taylors  are  a  Two-­‐ Parent  Biological  Family:   Consists  of  parents  and  the   children  who  are  from  the   union  of  these  parents  
  • 3. Levels  of  Adaptability  •  The  Taylors  have  a   very  structured   family  where  “family   members  experience   authoritarian  and   some  equalitarian   leadership  and   stables  roles  and   rules”  (p.  32).  
  • 4. Roles  •  Coach  Taylor  is   definitely  the  head  of   the  household  where   his  job  takes  precedent   over  the  others  in  the   family.    •  The  family  decisions  are   made  around  his  job   schedule  and  the  family   moves  according  to   where  he  is  employed.  
  • 5. Roles  •  Tami  Taylor    is  the  support   system  in  the  family   where  she  takes  on   everyone’s  problems  and   tries  to  help  resolve  any   sort  of  conflict.  •  She  is  a  guidance   councilor  at  the  same   school  Coach  Taylor’s   team  plays  for  and  where   their  daughter  goes.  
  • 6. Roles  •  Julie  Taylor  is  the  Taylors   daughter  and  she  is   typically  the  one  that   creates  the  family  drama.  •  She  is  a  student  at  Dillon   High  School  and  she  dates   the  star-ng  quarterback   of  the  team  –  which   makes  for  an  interes-ng   dynamic  between  coach,   the  quarterback,  and   Julie.  
  • 7. Decision  Making  •  “Decision  making  is  the  process  by  which   family  members  make  choices,  reach   judgments,  or  arrive  at  solu-ons  that  end   uncertainty”  (p.  20).  •  The  majority  of  the  decision  are  made  by  the   parents  in  the  family,  however,  Coach  Taylor  is   depicted  as  being  the  head  of  the  household   where  all  decisions  are  finalized.  
  • 8. Dialec-cal  Theory  •  “Family  rela-onships  are   not  sta-c  –  they  are   constantly  in  process…   Rela-onships  are  shapes   and  maintained  by  the  ways   members  manage   contradic-ons”  (p.  74).  •  The  Taylors  are  a  family  that   goes  through  a  number  of   changes  and  challenges,  but   as  the  family  is  faced  with   adversity  they  over  come  it   through  good   communica-on  func-ons.  
  • 9. Communica-on  Func-ons  •  Cohesion   –  The  Taylors  fall  under  the  category  of  “connected”   where  they  value  closeness  and  -me  together  but   understands  that  each  family  member  needs  to  do   their  own  thing  outside  of  the  family.  •  Adaptability     –  The  Taylors  have  shown  their  ability  to  change  and   overcoming  all  kinds  of  adversity.    Their   “flexibility”  has  enabled  them  to  be  a  successful   family  
  • 10. Rituals  •  The  Taylors  are  a  very  football  oriented  family   where  they  hold  team  dinners  for  the  team  in   support  of  the  school  and  the  football  program.  •  Every  Friday  Night  Tami  and  Julie  go  to  the  football   game  to  support  Coach  Taylor  and  the  Dillon   Panthers.  
  • 11. Family  Image  •  Football  is  very  important  to  the  Taylors,   however,  they  seem  to  make  being  a  family  the   priority.  •  They  make  decisions  as  a  family  and  fallow   through  with  the  promises  they  make  with  one   another.  •  Through  all  of  the  adversity  they  are  faced  with,   the  Taylors  make  sure  that  they  overcome  all  of   the  obstacles  they  face  and  come  together  as  a   unit  at  the  end  of  it  all.
