Action Methods in Relational Conflict.
This paper notes the introduction of roleplaying into the interpersonal communication curriculum, identifies interpersonal communication as the key variable in the maintenance of successful relationships, touches on common problematic areas in interpersonal conflict, and discusses how roleplaying and action methods (any of a variety of methods usually associated with laboratory or experiential learning and the expressive therapies which emphasize that something physically active is done by the participants in the course of learning, change, and personal growth) might be used to address these difficulties. (Contains 3 notes and 38 references; an 8-item lexicon of terms is attached.) (Author/RS)
