Abstract: A handbook for health professionals describes a model for the development of interpersonal communication. The authors suggest that interpersonal communication skills can be improved by practicing a series of exercises that lead to mastery of the model. The first 12 chapters discuss: rationale for model development, learning how to learn, perceiving and communicating, and problem solving. The remaining chapters focus on anger, other communication situations, and effective responses to various types of communication (gossip, griping). Six appendices provide supplemental materials to assist in independent study. This basic text can be used for training small groups or classes and is appropriate for both preservice and inservice training. (kbc).

Interpersonal Interactions And Language Learning

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book takes as its starting point the assumption that interpersonal communication is a crucial aspect of successful language learning. Following an examination of different communicative models, the authors focus on traditional face-to-face (F2F) interactions, before going on to compare these with the forms of computer-mediated communication (CMC) enabled by recent developments in educational technology. They also address the question of individual differences, particularly learners' preferred participation styles, and explore how F2F and CMC formats might impact learners differently. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of computer-mediated communication (CMC), computer-assisted language learning (CALL), technology-enhanced language learning (TELL), language acquisition and language education more broadly.
