What's in a name? Distinguishing between routine disclosure and self-disclosure

Abstract

A lack of specificity between two types of disclosure has emerged in research on adolescents’ relationship and communication with their parents. Researchers are obscuring the distinctions between self-disclosure and routine disclosure (i.e., disclosure of their whereabouts and activities to parents). In this article, we describe where the problems have arisen and then outline the conceptual differences between the two. Illustrations of how the two types of disclosure overlap or co-occur are provided to demonstrate how fruitful areas for future research can emerge from attending to the distinctions between these two constructs.
