Reports on two studies which explore the communication strategies that people employ to terminate relationships. Concludes that two variables--relationship closeness and perceived cause of the relationship demise--affect the disengager's use of termination strategies. For both variables, the critical difference appears to be in the use of withdrawal/avoidance strategies. (PD)
