Accompanied by author analysis and contemporary applications, this collection of readings, reflections and invitations to dialogue make Constructing Worlds Together: Interpersonal Communication as Relational Process a highly readable yet sophisticated text that is well-suited for today’s interpersonal communication course. Theoretical essays, research reports, narratives and ethnographic studies, have been carefully selected by the authors for their clarity, intellectual stimulation and relevance to students’ daily lives.

The authors introduce each reading and provide students with a preview of its insight, relevance, and association with social constructionist theory. Each piece is followed by a series of challenges and questions to help further student understanding and to stimulate continuing dialogue, with an emphasis on interactive learning. Students will come away with an ability to apply the wisdom of interpersonal communication with a critical eye to future challenges.
