Ritual in relationships

Carol Bruess
Carol (Sessler) Bruess ’90

The work in interpersonal communication of Carol (Sessler) Bruess ’90, a member of the faculty at the University of St. Thomas, keeps her focused on “What Happy Couples Do.” It’s the title of her blog and the topic, too, of an article about Carol and husband, Brian ’90, that appears in the Spring 2011 issue of St. Norbert College Magazine.

Readers can enjoy a taste of Carol’s scholarly work in excerpts from a chapter in the forthcoming book “Social Capital and Family Business” (2011), edited by R. Sorenson. This chapter, on “Family Rituals and Communication: The Construction of Family Identity and Social Capital, ” co-authored by Carol and Anna Kudak, is reproduced here by kind permission of Edward Elgar Press.
