Since the first edition in 1973, Bridges Not Walls has examined the power and promise of interpersonal communication in intimate relationships, families, communities, and cultures. The text presents a broad range of scholarly and popular articles drawn from several disciplines, including communication, psychology, and philosophy, all chosen for their understandability and practical applicability. Within these readings are thought-provoking discussions of interpersonal contact, identity-management, verbal and nonverbal cues, perception, listening, assertiveness and self-disclosure, family communication, intimacy and social support, defensiveness and hurtful communication, conflict management, culture, and dialogue. Together, the readings emphasize the social and relational elements of human communication, the overlapping influence of verbal and nonverbal cues, the prominence of culture, and the close connection between quality of communication and quality of life.

Trotz der Bedeutung der Gruppe der Gleichaltrigen für die Entwicklung von Kindern ist die therapeutische Gruppenarbeit mit Kindern bisher viel zu wenig erforscht und verbreitet. Alfons Aichinger und Walter Holl haben in über 30jähriger Arbeit die Grundideen und Interventionsmöglichkeiten des Psychodramas speziell für die therapeutische Gruppenarbeit mit Kindern weiterentwickelt. Mit vielen Beispielen beschreiben sie die sinnvolle Zusammensetzung der Gruppe, das symbolische Spiel der Kinder, Realitätsbezug und die Leitungstechnik einer solchen Gruppe. Das Buch ist eine Einladung an KollegInnen aller therapeutischer Schulen, eigene Denk- und Handlungsansätze für die therapeutische Arbeit mit Kindern zu entwickeln.

From high-level business negotiations to casual conversations among friends, every interpersonal interaction is shaped by cultural norms and expectations. Seldom is this more clearly brought to light than in encounters between people from different cultural backgrounds, when dissimilar communication practices may lead to frustration and misunderstanding. This thought-provoking text presents a new framework for understanding the impact of culture on communication and for helping students build intercultural communication competence. With illustrative examples from around the globe, the book shows that verbal and nonverbal communication involves much more than transmitting a particular message--it also reflects each participant's self-image, group identifications and values, and privacy and relational needs. Readers learn to move effectively and appropriately through a wide range of transcultural situations by combining culture-specific knowledge with mindful listening and communication skills. Throughout, helpful tables and charts and easy-to-follow guidelines for putting concepts into practice enhance the book's utility for students.
