For one-term freshman/sophomore-level courses in Human Relations, Interpersonal Relations, or Relationships.

Thoroughly grounded in recent psychological and sociological research-and celebrating diversity throughout-this text goes beyond the typical self-exploration text to provide a complete exploration of interpersonal skills and the process of building relationships. The book focuses on self-awareness and self-esteem as a prelude to the development of positive, effective interpersonal communications skills and healthy, fulfilling professional and personal relationships. It helps students learn to take responsibility for themselves, make wiser choices, improve their relationships, appreciate all kinds of diversity, and live happier, fulfilling, and productive lives. "Reflections and Applications" sections provide easily accessible, hands-on, user-friendly assignments and activities.
