Interpersonal Communication : Relating to Others -Text Only - 4th edition

Interpersonal Communication : Relating to Others -Text Only (ISBN10: 0205417922; ISBN13: 9780205417926)
ISBN13: 978-0205417926
ISBN10: 0205417922

Summary: Interpersonal Communication offers a blend of theory and skills that students can use to become "other-oriented"--mindfully considerate of the thoughts, needs, and values of others.

Fueled by the authors' conviction that "skills inform principles; principles inform skills,"Interpersonal Communication: Relating to Others maintains a careful balance between theoretical and skills-oriented material. This book integrates a key emphasis on d
iversity with examples drawn from a variety of age and ethnic groups and special boxes that focus on gender and diversity issues. A chapter on intercultural communication supplements this integral material by relating it to the "other-oriented" approach.

Features
  • A skills/principles blend helps students to become competent and knowledgeable communicators and to make informed choices about their communication with others.
    • "Building Your Skills" exercises promote immediate interactive learning of concepts and skills.
  • Research conclusions about interpersonal communication are integrated in every chapter and discuss recent research observations from communication scholars.
    • Strong coverage of diversity and sensitivity to others are featured in "Understanding Diversity" boxes, a chapter on diversity (Ch. 4), and discussions of diverse issues integrated throughout the text.
  • An emphasis on relationships links communication skills with principles that explain and predict how relationships begin, develop, and sometimes decline.
    • A lively and interesting writing style makes use of stories, quotations, cartoons, illustrations, media, poetry, and art to support teaching and to extend information presented in the book.
  • Helpful pedagogical features include chapter objectives; margin definitions; Recaps (section summaries); chapter summaries; end-of-chapter questions focusing on comprehension, critical thinking, and ethics; end-of-chapter activities; journal activities, and weblinks.
    • Discussion throughout the text on the role the Internet plays in building and maintaining interpersonal relationships, a section in Ch. 12 called "Interpersonal Communication on the Internet," and lists of helpful Weblinks all build on the book's message that technology influences interpersonal relationships.
