Negotiating Life Changes.
Friedman, Paul
Communication training for people experiencing life changes is examined in this paper. Among the topics considered are: recent social changes that have led to the occurrence of an increasing number of personal and professional changes during people's lives; the increased attention given recently to the process of communication within relationships; basic competencies for communication in interpersonal relationships; the nature of people seeking guidance for dealing with intimate relationships; central characteristics of an intimate relationship; ways the content of communication training for people experiencing life changes can address cognition, emotion, behavior patterns, self-concept, and system concepts; considerations in deciding on the form communication training programs will take; values of using a multi-family approach; and how to prepare couples for change, help them experiment with changes, and provide for the transfer of change to out-of-group settings.
