Focused on the importance of understanding diverse perspectives in everyday interactions as critical to successful communication, this innovative experiential book helps readers explore and analyze first-hand the various ways that people perceive themselves, others, and the world around them. KEY TOPICS: The book is designed to help readers increase interpersonal communication skills — while encouraging sensitivity to other's perceptions — and requires them to actively participate in the processes of critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration via exercises and activities that develop skills, nurture imagination and creativity, pose questions, stimulate thinking on a variety of issues from a myriad of perspectives, and challenge them to reevaluate attitudes and opinions. The activities appeal to all learning styles through the use of open-ended roleplays, analysis of videotapes, case-related in-text questions, and the completion of journals and flowcharts.
