Other chapters offer applications of interpersonal communication to listening, conflict management, interviewing, small group communication, and technological media influences. Each chapter ends with suggested communication experiences and job applications as ways of reality-testing concepts and communication practices. Special exercises and observational tasks are included in the Appendices.
