Communicating Interpersonally: A Reader.
Pace, R. Wayne; And Others
Through the processes of communication, we establish and maintain or disrupt relationships. Understanding others and being understood involves a cooperative effort toward achieving a commonality of meaning, and effectiveness in our relationships requires a genuine knowledge of and skill in communicating interpersonally. This book is designed to help students acquire knowledge of what it means to communicate with others; what behaviors and other factors influence--positively and negatively--effective relationships; what might be anticipated as the consequence of changing communicative style; and how improvement in interpersonal relationships might be achieved through more effective communication. Organized into topics, these four sections contain provocative essays, contributed by professionals in the field, which provide in-depth analysis of the communication process. The book notably includes several classic readings that are out of print or for other reasons are inaccessible. (Author/LG)
