The need has never been greater for this new edition of Human Relations Development given the critical and ever-increasing importance of collaboration and co-teaching, effective home-school partnerships, and nurturing teacher-student relationships. This much-lauded text is a skills training manual for improving interpersonal communication, focusing on human relations between teachers and their students, parents, peers, and the general public.

I think this is a terrific text that is well suited to helping educators learn how to deal with a variety of difficult people and situations.

Students begin to appreciate the complexity of language and the examinations require them to apply the concepts they’ve learned!
