Dialogue : theorizing difference in communication studies by Rob Anderson( )

The contributors consider a wide range of settings--interpersonal, organizational, societal, and political--and look at the methodology as well as the research underpinning dialogic approaches to the study of communication. The core texts of dialogue studies, including Buber , Gadamer, Habermas, and Bakhtin, set the foundation in Part I, Exploring the Territories of Dialogue. In Part II, Personal Voices in Dialogue, the contributors survey one-on-one, small group, and organization dialogue. Part III, Public Voices in Dialogue, examines the spaces for discourse in more expansive public, intercultural, and mediated settings. The editors pull together disparate implications, connections, and new directions in a dialogue-inspired conclusion

These scholars examine both classic and cutting-edge theories to guide family communication research in the coming years."

Remaking family communicatively by Leslie A Baxter( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume gathers together communication scholars who are working on the many kinds of alternative family forms, from, among others, grandfamilies, diasporic immigrant families, and military families to in (voluntarily) childless families and stepfamilies. The organizing question for the volume focuses on resistance, reconstruction, and resilience: how is it that alternatives to the traditional family are constructed and sustained through communicative practices? Several chapters adopt a global perspective, thereby framing the issue of legitimation of "family" in a broader cultural context.--Provided by publisher

Communicator Age and Sex Role Orientation Differences in Preferred Relationship Termination Strategies by Leslie A Baxter( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study examined two factors thought to affect an individual's preference for confrontation or avoidance strategies when ending a relationship--communicator age and sex role orientation. Subjects were 29 fifth grade students, 64 high school sophomores, 43 college students, and 37 adults enrolled in a night class. All subjects read a scenario from the Friendship Survey entitled "Letting Someone Know That the Friendship Is Over" and responded to a series of questions that elicited (1) a list of all possible strategies that could be used to terminate a relationship, (2) the strategy most preferred by the respondent, and (3) the reason for that preference. All respondents, except the fifth grade students, also completed the Bem Sex Role Inventory. Both fifth grade students and adults displayed a preference for confrontation as opposed to avoidance relationship termination strategies, whereas adolescents preferred avoidance strategies. Androgynous persons preferred confrontation strategies, while masculine sex-typed persons displayed the greatest preference for avoidance strategies. (Fl)
An Exploratory Investigation of Diffused Point Arrival Time and SourceCredibility by Leslie A Baxter( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Because much conjecture (but limited empirical research) exists about the nonverbal variable to time, this exploratory study investigated the effects of differential arrival times on four dimensions of source credibility: sociability, dynamism, competence, and composure. Subjects were 84 educational secretaries with a mean age of 49 years. Each subject completed 25 semantic differential credibility scales for each of three arrival times: 15 minutes early, on time, and 15 minutes late. Data were analyzed with factor analysis, analyses of variance, and appropriate Scheffe tests. Results showed that: (1) the late arriver is perceived as less sociable and less competent than early or on-time arrivers; (2) the early arriver is perceived as less dynamic than the late or on-time arrivers; and (3) the on-time arriver is perceived as most composed while the late arriver is perceived as least composed.

The final chapter : end-of-life identity constructions in hospice narrative performances by Sarah Nicole Pederson( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Specifically, these findings might inform traditional practitioners and encourage them to broaden the clinical definition of the good death, with an understanding that elements such as esteem and emotional support or empowerment might be paramount for some patients' good deaths. Additionally, these findings offer awareness to family members regarding cultural expectations of the good death, so that they might consider whether they are adding pressure to their loved ones to achieve such a death
Self-Disclosure as a Relationship Disengagement Strategy: An ExploratoryInvestigation by Leslie A Baxter( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The willingness of interactants to disclose information about themselves in relationships from which they wish to disengage was compared with their willingness to self-disclose in relationships they wish to maintain. The subjects, 102 college students, were randomly assigned to one of four hypothetical scenarios: one in which the respondent wished to disengage from a relationship but the other person wished to maintain it; one in which both persons wished to disengage from the relationship; one in which both wished to maintain it; and one in which the respondent wished to maintain it and the other person wished to disengage from it. A 20-item questionnaire was then administered to assess respondents' degree of willingness to discuss topics of varying intimacy within the assigned scenarios. Analysis of the results indicated that willingness to self-disclose lessened as the respondent's relational intent shifted from maintenance to disengagement, that willingness to self-disclose did not change significantly with changing perceptions of the other person's relational intent, and that sex differences were not significant. Future research should be devoted to relationship disengagement as well as to the more frequently studied relationship initiation. (The four scenarios and the 20-item questionnaire are included.)

Fostering resilience : exploring former foster children's narratives by Lindsey Juhl Jean Thomas( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Narrators of Helping Others and Giving Back, who talked about assisting others in the foster care system because of their own experiences, also trended toward displaying greater resilience than Ongoing Rupture. These results indicate that framing might be as important to wellbeing as lived experiences. Thus, it is important to continue to explore narrative therapy as a means to bolster (former) foster children's resilience
