This Interpersonal Communication text has a primary focus of what is called dyadic communication, or what we would call relational communication. So, the idea is that by the time you are done with this class, you will be in a better place to communicate with an intimate partner, family member, friend, co-worker, or the like. Topics that we will cover may mirror what you have covered in other communication classes, however, we take a deeper dive. We will cover an introduction to interpersonal communication, self-concept, emotions, listening, communication skills, and conflict. Then, we will examine specific interpersonal relationships so that you can learn how to improve these relationships.
