This study examined the role of family communication patterns (conversation and conformity orientation) to predict frequency and intensity of parent adolescent conflict. Participants included 189 students (37 girls and 116 boys) selected from Birjand high schools. The measures of study include Asadi Younsi Parent-Adolescent Conflict Questionnaire (2011) and Koerner and Fitzpatrick Revised Version of Family Communication Patterns Instrument (2002). Alpha Cronbach were calculated to examine reliability of the measures. Pearson’s correlation and regression analysis were performed for the data analysis. Results indicated: A) conversation orientation was a negative predictor of intensity conflict in girls and boys; B) conformity orientation was significant and positive predictor of intensity conflict in boys. Thus the importance of education in the field of adolescent behavior and interaction with parents and families to improve the quality of communication skills can be a deterrent in reducing conflicts between parents and Adolescents.
