Promotional Information

Interpersonal Communication offers a blend of theory and skills that the reader can use to become "other-oriented"-mindfully considerate of the thoughts, needs, and values of others. Fueled by the authors' conviction that "skills inform principles; principles inform skills," Interpersonal Communication: Relating to Others maintains a careful balance between theoretical and skills-oriented material. This book integrates a key emphasis on diversity with examples drawn from a variety of age and ethnic groups and special boxes that focus on gender and diversity issues. A chapter on intercultural communication supplements this integral material by relating it to the "other-oriented" approach.
