Offering insights from a Who′s Who of scholars in interpersonal communication
"A highly beneficial contribution to the field with chapters that are clear and concise and illuminate the interesting and important aspects of interpersonal communication. With each chapter students are informed about the components of the theory and are also provided with examples that they can relate to, which really brings these theories to life."
―René Dailey, University of Texas at Austin
"I love this book for its insight, organization, and inclusiveness. I like that the authors use specific examples and then apply their theory to the examples for illustration―this is how students begin to learn how to use and understand theories. What an accessible, thorough, and user-friendly book."
―Maureen P. Keeley, Texas State University-San Marcos
Engaging Theories in Interpersonal Communication: Multiple Perspectives highlights theories used to guide interpersonal communication research, featuring chapters written by leading scholars of interpersonal communication. Presenting both classic and cutting-edge issues, the book organizes theories into three clusters―theories that are individually-centered; theories that are focused on discourse and interaction processes; and theories that examine how communication functions in personal relationships.
