Problems, Problem-Solving and Human Communication: A Laboratory Approach to Training in Interpersonal Communication. Technical Report.
Brissey, F. L.; And Others
This technical report is in three parts. Part I is a conceptual treatment of communication in which the human being is viewed as a goal-attainment system. The goal-attainment problem is defined as a discrepancy between the current state of the system and a specified goal state. Several forms of the communicative relationship are outlined. Part II describes a Task-Directed Learning (TDL) approach to communication training in which participants generate and critically examine their interpersonal communication in relation to selected measures of effectiveness in solving laboratory problems. Brief descriptions of problems and related materials (Vocom problems) are included. Part III summarizes objective performance data (time, error, and recall) for selected Vocom problems, and presents some informal suggestions for research in interpersonal communication. (Authors/MLF)
