Use and Understand Interpersonal Communication Theories

Engaging Theories in Interpersonal Communication: Multiple Perspectives highlights key theories used to guide interpersonal communication research. The Second Edition features 30 theory chapters written by leading scholars in interpersonal communication, including new coverage of evolutionary theories, Problematic Integration Theory, supportive communication theories, Theory of Motivated Information Management, critical approaches to interpersonal communication, and Media Multiplexity Theory. Each theory chapter follows the same structure to help readers easily find and compare information across theories. An updated introductory chapter maps the history and the current state of interpersonal communication theory since publication of the first edition, based on comprehensive analysis of published scholarship.  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. All authors interweave abstract theoretical concepts with concrete examples in order to maximize readability and comprehension.

Review:

"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."

-- Rene Dailey

"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

"This book is clearly needed as our discipline is advancing almost exponentially in the area of theory and theory development. For so long we have relied, in whole or part, on the theories of other disciplines and consequently fragmented "readings." For students, this book provides an interpersonal link to what we′ve borrowed in the past and presents future implications of how we might take the current theoretical developments and use them to further test the respective theories or to guide subsequent research."

-- Clark D. Olson

"Useful, thorough examination of interpersonal theories that will help my students apply theory competently to their own experience."

-- Leanne Pupchek

"This book had an excellent review of the relevant theories in Interpersonal Communication. The text was perfect for an advanced undergraduate course."

-- Nancy Tobler
