Offering insights from a Who's Who of scholars in interpersonal communication, Engaging Theories in Interpersonal Communication highlights theories used to guide interpersonal communication research, featuring chapters written by leading scholars of interpersonal communication. Presenting both classic and cutting-edge issues, Dawn O. Braithwaite and Paul Schrodt organize theories into three clusters--theories that are individually-centered; theories that are focused on discourse and interaction processes; and theories that examine how communication functions in personal relationships. Each chapter shares a common approach and includes evaluation of the theory and practical application. New to this edition are: *Eight new theory chapters including a focus on media, social support, critical approaches, and biological and evolutionary theories. *New reports on the analysis of theory in interpersonal communication studies. *New sections on evaluation, practical applications, and continuing the conversation.
