In this program, Karina Alexanyan of Columbia University outlines the functions of interpersonal communication and teaches how to increase the effectiveness of interpersonal interactions. Alexanyan explores the variables that define context, including situation, style, function, participants, body language, and conscious and unconscious assumptions and intentions. She considers the influences of group affiliation and diversity on interpersonal interactions; highlights such facets of nonverbal communication as body language, personal appearance, proxemics, paralanguage, haptics, and chronemics; examines listening and offers tips to improve listening effectiveness; and covers such interpersonal skills as relating, conflict management, responding to self-disclosure, giving and receiving feedback, and enhancing communication with individuals from diverse backgrounds. The DVD includes vignettes that illustrate effective and ineffective interpersonal interactions.
