The Handbook of Communication Skills is recognized as one of the core texts in the field of communication, offering a state-of-the-art overview of this rapidly evolving field of study. This comprehensively revised and updated fourth edition arrives at a time when the realm of interpersonal communication has attracted immense attention. Recent research showing the potency of communication skills for success in many walks of life has stimulated considerable interest in this area, both from academic researchers, and from practitioners whose day-to-day work is so dependent on effective social skills. Covering topics such as non-verbal behavior, listening, negotiation and persuasion, the book situated communication in a range of different contexts, from interacting in groups to the counseling interview. Based on the core tenet that interpersonal communication can be conceptualized as a form of skilled activity, and including new chapters on cognitive behavioral therapy and coaching and mentoring, this new edition also places communication in context with advances in digital technology--back cover.
