Ho, Hua-Kuo
Online Submission
Human communication is a critical issue in personal life. It also should be the indispensable core element of general education curriculum in universities and colleges. Based on literature analysis and the author's clinical observation, the importance of human communication, functions of model, and often seen human communication models were firstly discussed, then the Integrated Communication Model (ICM) was finally developed by integrating the important human communication factors. While illustrating the ICM, the meanings of important communication factors, relationships among these factors, functions of the model, as well as the future research questions were also discussed, respectively. In this developed initial model of human communication, the communicator should be the controller of the whole communication process. If we could consider the human relationship, time and situation factors, then adequately employ our own verbal and nonverbal endeavors, it is possible to create favorable momentum to influence the atmosphere and outcomes of communication.
