Interpersonal Communication, Fourth Edition empowers students to become more confident communicators by providing them with both the knowledge and the practical skills they need to make effective communication choices in today's rapidly changing and technologically advanced society. Rather than "telling" students how to communicate, authors Richard L. West and Lynn H. Turner offer a toolbox of key skills pertaining to each communication theory so students 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 between theory, skills, and the life situations we all encounter on a daily basis.
