Communication in Loving Relationships.
Shelton, Robert L.
A description of a college course entitled "The Loving Relationship," this report first explains course structure and requirements, textbooks used, and instructional goals. After offering assumptions underlying the course's development, including the ideas that loving is an act of will, that communication is essential to love, and that personal values cannot be divorced from an examination of loving relationships, the report explains the general course content. It then lists significant problems posed by the course, such as student expectations of easy grading, difficulties in choosing and training student facilitators for discussion sections, and problems in covering a large amount of material in one semester. It closes with a sample syllabus. (MM)
