This book of original case studies allows students in interpersonal and relational communication classes to engage with creative stories about lives and relationships, helping them understand how communication processes work. Written in literary format—essays, short stories, scripts, photographs, poetry—these 27 brief case studies by communication researchers allow students to see the workings of relationship management, friendship, disclosure, gender, family interaction, and other key topics in relational communication. Faulkner’s introduction to each section provides the basic pedagogical content to give context and meaning to the cases that follow. Questions for discussion, activities, and additional resources end each case to help guide the student.
