By now, you are aware that the arena of communication is one of great interpersonal activity. Therefore, this learning journey has been designed to help you become aware of what this interpersonal activity means as we play “bumper humans” day in and day out. Furthermore, as we gained understanding of what charges or energizes these points of contact, our interaction has moved from the normative to the transformative level in every relationship.
The last two modules/weeks have afforded the opportunity to gain further knowledge in interpersonal communication and apply it. Now, it is time to develop your interpersonal communication that will not only demonstrate your understanding but, more importantly, also help you develop in you things that can transform how you communicate with others under the umbrella of your overarching goal. Ask yourself these questions: What is the right resource to meet a real need(s) in my interpersonal context, in the right way, at the right time, and for the right reason? What will strengthen my relationship with God and the people in my interpersonal arena? Answering these questions will put you well on your way to building bridges, not walls, in your interpersonal communication arena.
I have attached my work done in this class for each week along with chapters from two books we used during the class. I will list the book references from the class for the reference page. The outside references will have to be cited by you when you find them.
