Richard West, Lynn H. Turner
Interpersonal Communication, Fourth Edition empowers you to become a more confident communicator by providing you with both the knowledge and the practical skills you need to make effective communication choices in today's rapidly changing and technologically advanced society. Rather than "telling" you how to communicate, authors Richard L. West and Lynn H. Turner offer a toolbox of key skills so you can actively choose and experiment with strategies appropriate for a given situation. Filled with realistic examples and scenarios that reflect the diversity and interactions of today's students, this practical text makes clear connections among theory, skills, and the life situations we all encounter on a daily basis.
New to the Fourth Edition:
- New personal reflection questions for the IPC Careers and IPC Around Us features help you discover the relevance of interpersonal communication in your everyday life.
- A new applied theory feature, IPC Praxis, shows you how to apply the theories outlined in the chapter narrative to your life experiences.
- New chapter wrap-ups, key questions for application, and communication application tests provide you with opportunities to assess what you have learned in the chapter.
- SAGE edge provides you with helpful tools, including eFlashcards, practice quizzes, and more, in one easy-to-use online environment.
